I've only come for an hour.
The sentence above comes from my Oxford Dictionary's 2nd/4th/6th/7th-edition Chineses translations. And it is translated into Chinese equal to something like 'It is only an hour since I came here.'
My question is, is the sentence 'I've only come for an hour' good English? If it is, what does it mean? This 'come' in Oxford is defined as 'move in order to be with sb or to be present at an event'.
Could I ask native speakers to help me please? Thank you in advance.

It is something that you might say having just arrived at someone's house and announcing your intention to stay for about an hour.
