Timing starts on gaining control of the character. (the frame before Mario starts moving right / the frame after the brightness is at its maximum after loading 1-1)
Timing ends on touching the axe in the final stage. (Mario and Bowser's hammers being invisible)

Times below 5:26.00 need a video.
Due to the popularity of the game, times below 5:06.00 are treated with suspicion. To maximise your chances of having a run verified it is highly recommended that you stream all of your attempts and provide split files.
