I'm not quite sure what needs to be explained.  I think the doc string
of flyspell-delay and flyspell-default-delayed-commands tell the whole
story; if something is unclear there, please say what is unclear.

If you want to see this feature in action, turn on Flyspell, then type
something like "ssss", and then wait _without_ typing any non-word
character.  You will see that the mis-spelled word is marked only
after 3 sec, the default value of flyspell-delay.  Then contrast that
with the same word with a space typed after it.

IOW, this is a feature designed to avoid annoying users who type
slowly or make short breaks after typing only part of a word.
