There isn't anything in the config, but you could definitely edit kismet_server.cc - look for where it registers timers, and change that value. There are a lot of sub-modules which also register at the 1 second timer though.

If you wanted to add a config option & send a patch I'd almost definitely merge it.

There should be minimal other issues beyond changing those timer registry values.
