The Wikipedia has the following information about this codepoint:

An hour (symbol: h; also abbreviated hr) is a unit of time conventionally reckoned as 1โ„24 of a day and scientifically reckoned between 3,599 and 3,601 seconds, depending on the speed of Earth's rotation. There are 60 minutes in an hour, and 24 hours in a day.

The hour was initially established in the ancient Near East as a variable measure of 1โ„12 of the night or daytime. Such seasonal, temporal, or unequal hours varied by season and latitude.

Equal or equinoctial hours were taken as 1โ„24 of the day as measured from noon to noon; the minor seasonal variations of this unit were eventually smoothed by making it 1โ„24 of the mean solar day. Since this unit was not constant due to long term variations in the Earth's rotation, the hour was finally separated from the Earth's rotation and defined in terms of the atomic or physical second.

In the modern metric system, hours are an accepted unit of time defined as 3,600 atomic seconds. However, on rare occasions an hour may incorporate a positive or negative leap second, making it last 3,599 or 3,601 seconds, in order to keep it within 0.9 seconds of UT1, which is based on measurements of the mean solar day.
