The normal prothrombin time is 11-15 seconds, although there is some variation depending on the source of the thromboplastin used in the test.

Are men allowed to do woman's measurement in an army PT test?

No. The male and female PT tables are labeled that way for a reason. When the current three-event PT test (which I don't agree with as it doesn't really test the physical demands of a soldier; the Canadian Army's PT test is much better) was developed in the late 1970s, the female standards in all three events were far lower than the male standards. That changed when every woman in the Army maxed the situp portion of the PT test.
