You can convert the time into a human-readable format using the Linux date command. For example:

  date --date=@$((0x5889ed58))

The time zone is the time zone as used by the machine's CMOS clock. This will often (but not always) be UTC. If you need a time in a known time zone, then you can use the ntp command to obtain the current UTC time.
