I get the following error when I am taking the time and span value dynamically using tokens.

span is a time separator or time scale and therefore can not take negative values or 0. Try to select a time span=1s and you will see that you will not have this error message. Subsequently avoid negative or zero values in the token period, otherwise you will always have this error message.
