Generally you want to start with about a liter of wort that's around 1.040 for starter for this size batch (simply because that's what all the calculators and rules of thumb assume) so in your case you should have diluted the wort to 1.040 with water, boiled and chilled (I'm assuming you took the wort before you added the hops, btw)

As for how long it takes, that depends on viability, conditions, and if you're using a stir plate. Usually 24 to 36 hours should be enough. Just look at your starter for signs of healthy fermentation.
