Once every 2-4 hours is fine. Go back, and check where you found "it should be once an hour" you will find that is said by koi keepers. Koi produce a lot of waste and so do need a high turnover for a highly stocked pond. (which yours isn't going to be)

Also, what does the "cm" of fish refer to? Is it the amount of fish per certain amount of water or similar?

It means what it says. Brand Q filter is happy with 105 cm of fish, and brand H filter is happy with 148 cm of fish.
Any more than the quoted figures and the filter can not cope, so the fish will suffer. (The filters mentioned do not exist, they are for illustration purposes only)
