Feature request: 24h clock format in reader

Bug Description

The ebook reader allows the time to be displayed in the header or footer. Only the US-style 12-hour-clock is supported (e.g. "2:50 pm").

I suggest adding a "Clock (24h)" option that outputs the time in the 24-hour-clock style (e.g. "14:50"). This is the preferred style outside English-speaking countries. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/24-hour_clock.

It's not any particular format, it is supposed to use the locale
settings from your system. Is that not the case on your system?

No, my locale is set to use the 24 h clock. I just checked in the Windows 10 locale settings.

Well then its a bug in Qt WebEgine not using your system locale. It
might be possible to workaround it by using the system format directly.
What does running the follwoing in a command prompt return:

calibre-debug -c "from PyQt5.Qt import *; app = QApplication([]); print(QLocale.system().timeFormat(QLocale.ShortFormat))"
