That is correct, the lower the power level the shorter the flash duration. Each flash has a different length of flash and that is included in the user manual except for the SB-400.

SB-600 page 88
SB-700 page H-17
SB-800 page 122
SB-900 page F-15
SB-910 page H-14

For the SB-700:

1/1042 sec. at M1/1 (full) output
1/1136 sec. at M1/2 output
1/2857 sec. at M1/4 output
1/5714 sec. at M1/8 output
1/10000 sec. at M1/16 output
1/18182 sec. at M1/32 output
1/25000 sec. at M1/64 output
1/40000 sec. at M1/128 output

Attached is a PDF with the duration times for Nikon Speedlights and the Excel source file for the PDF.
