Oh, I have another slow eater here! DS just likes to savor his meals, I guess. He sits at the table for at least 20 minutes, usually 30-45 at dinner time. He is in daycare for lunch, and he is always the last to finish his meal. I have been there for parties, and watched all the other kids leave the table and go play. DS just sits there, slowly enjoying his cupcake all alone. And he doesn't even usually finish everything--he just takes his time.
So, no advice here on limits. If he is taking an excessively long time (like over 45 minutes or even an hour), I will try to lure him away with promises of playing together with favorite toys or something.
