Nios has not a native timer. All processor peripherals are implemented in Qsys. 

When you instantiate the Qsys component you can set a fixed period or make it sofware programmable. 

If you are working on a Nios system someone else has built for you, refer to the bsp or system.h to retrieve the device capabilities and parameters.
