I was just missing '=' in my commands.
Right command was: powertop --time=60
Thanks Christophe for pointing it out.

Subject: [Powertop] Powertop on chromeos
I am trying to use PowerTop on a baytrail-M board running chromeOS.
I downloaded the source from https://github.com/fenrus75/powertop
and compiled in my host
machine (Ubuntu 12.04)
Then I copied the binary to the baytrail-M board on which I need to take measurements.
When I run the powertop binary, it seems to work and I could even get the output in csv or
But, my problem is that I could not configure any other parameter while running the tool.
For example, powertop --time 60 does not work. Neither does powertop --iteration 3
It always says it is taking 1 measurement in 20 seconds.
I notice that it reports that it could not load from file
Is that an issue?
Should I install some configuration file somewhere in my target machine?
Has anyone tried running powertop on chromeOS?
Any pointers to fix this issue would be of great help to me.
