comment Timeline with automatized hours and minutes
Can you post what you tried so as to determine what went wrong with using HH:MM instead of years? Replacing the \foreach with \foreach \x in {0,...,17}{ \draw (\x,0) node[below=7pt,anchor=east,xshift=0,rotate=45] {$\x\colon 00$}; } seems to work just fine. You can also eliminate all the manual draw commands by using \draw[] (\x,-0.1) -- (\x,0.1); within the \foreach loop.

comment Specifying the width and height of a tikzpicture
Ok, but I was trying to explain why it does not make sense to specify the height/width of a tikzpicture, but does make sense to be able to specify the height/width of a pgfplots graph. With a tikzpicture only the scale option makes sense.

comment Specifying the width and height of a tikzpicture
With a tikzpicture, you specify all the coordinates, so the picture is as big as needed. With pgfplots, the size of the plot is computed, so you can specify the width and height options to the axis environment within a tikzpicture.

comment Tikz: draw a vector pointing from one point to another
@Shiyu: Not sure I understand. If you already know d_1 then you can use that without knowing the distance d. d can certainly be computed, but just not sure what you want to do with it. Try changing the shorten amount to 0.00 and see what happens, and replace that with d_1 length.
