you probably need to raise the "scanner_plugins_timeout" [1] of your
scan configuration which is a timeout (in seconds) a Port Scanner NVT is
allowed to run.

The NVT "Nmap (NASL wrapper)" OID: from the
"Port scanners" family has various tuning options for nmap. You might

and how to configure those to achieve what you're looking for.
