The way a tournament ends in the TD application is 1 (or zero) players remain.  You can't end it before that happens.  So to end the tournament, bust all remaining players out (or leave 1).

If you're looking at how to schedule a tournament to end at around a certain time, you can use the Rounds Suggestion tool.  That uses a common formula for determining the blinds that will generally force the tournament to end soon.  But to be honest, it doesn't create a great schedule.  You'll have to probably adjust the rounds a little bit after it's done.  There are also tools on the web that can generate a schedule for you, many that are admittedly probably much better than the TD's Rounds Suggestion tool.
