It may take at least half an hour total, no problem with kids as soon as you are allowed to climb to the middle level only (about 46 m high) - unlike St.Peter's or St.Paul's

75 min - definitely enough. You can buy tickets for both the cathedral and colonnade climbing from the box office near entrances (from the square side); cathedral entrance is in the left, the one fol colonnade - on the right; after finishing with the cathedral inside - you go out from the other side and need to return back to the entrance to start climbing.

Never ever saw any pedestrian jams in daytime on the walkway... It is at your convenience and time frame.
