Percentage of time of an evaluation used to perform the evaluation
I often need to evaluate the time required to test a modification and include this time into the evaluation.
What is the average percentage of the time evaluated that should be used to perform the evaluation ?
For example, if I evaluate the testing time of a modification to 9 hours and it takes me 1 hour to do the evaluation my evaluation will be 10 hours. This mean that 10% of the evaluated time has been used for the evaluation.

I would say that the question itself doesn't make sense, because "the value of any practice depends on its context". It barely matters how much time other people in other projects dedicate for planning because they are acting in a different context.
Your planning should take as long it needs to take since you need this time to technical excellence and good design. Naturally, you can at regular intervals, reflect on how to become more effective, then tune and adjust your behavior accordingly.
Other's planning will aim may aim at the same, but since the context is different, the planning itself will be different.
