Since "watts" is a rate of usage of energy there is not such concept as "9watts per hour".
9 watts is 9 joules/s.  So 32.4kJ/hr.

mine takes 4-5 when booting from the SD-card. When idling it uses 3 watt. I don't use the usb port.

I sampled how much power my plug drinks in various states after I replaced the PSU. The results are at the bottom here:

The short version is "while powering a small USB hub, and with two USB devices, it draws about 6W from the outside."

9 watt-hours! Or 0.009 kilowatt-hours!

Which is the energy consumed by running at 9 W for 1 hour.  It is not a power measure.  The power measure in this case would be 9W.
