There is now a [pre]-publication out, authored by Nicholas J. Loman and
Aaron R. Quinlan, that introduces a toolkit for working with nanopore data:

If you squint really hard at figure 1 (or zoom in lots), you can see the read length graph and a graph of cumulative output over time (see attached figure). It shows a median read length of about 8kbp, maximum read length of over 30kbp, with just under 300 Mbp generated in about 28 hours.

There's also another alternative R toolkit from Mick Watson's lab that has been released with a slightly different method of dealing with the data:
