could anyone help me with the structure "noun + كم من"

could anyone help me with the structure "noun + كم من"
I read it on a book, but I really don't understand clearly. For example:
كم من الكتب عندك؟
how many of the books do you have??? I'm not sure if it's the correct translation

but what happen in this sentence?
كم من الوقت؟
does it mean how long time?.. I don't know if I could say:
كم من الوقت الرحلة إلي أمريكى بالطائرة؟
How long is the trip to America by airplane?

    The first example is correct. كم من الوقت= How long time or How much time? You should say : How much time trip takes to America? كم من الوقت تستغرقه الرحله الي امريكا؟ How long it takes to go on a trip to America? كم من الوقت يلزم للذهاب في رحله الي امريكا؟ There are more than one way to say it but: كم من = How many (for countable) or How much ( for uncountable)
