T denotes the period of oscillation,

l the length of the string on which the mass hangs.

Notice that the period doesn't depend on how "wide" the mass swings.

l : m/s

g: m/s^2

(m/s) / (m/s^2) : s

[itex]P = \frac{1}{T}[/itex]

So to calculate time of oscillation, [itex]T[/itex] would need to be made subject.

No, a "period" is a certain length of time and so has the same units as T (whatever "T" means here). The formula you give is for "frequency"- the number of times the pendulum swings during 1 second and so has units of "1/sec".

[itex]P = \frac{1}{T}[/itex]

So to calculate time of oscillation, [itex]T[/itex] would need to be made subject.
