This functionality is not available but should make it in the next

Note however, that lifetimes are not negotiated. Either side configured
it, and whenever a side deems the maximum is reached, it is up to them
to initiate a rekey or reauthentication. So this option is at least not
preventing you from establishing an IPsec connection.

Note also that 4.6MB is a very small amount of traffic if this lifetime
is associated with ESP. For IKE it might be okay, but a little strange
to specify.
