You have been going back and forth in the final for 15 minutes, and suddenly your opponents connect 3 for 3 on the baseline. The home crowd roars in amazement! Should a team be alloted a timeout to recover from the impact? If so, how long?

Isn't this fundamentally the same as my suggestion regarding a 1 minute time limit to stand up the kubbs?

If there is no time limit for any phase of the Kubb game then a team timeout is availble at any point in the game.

Unless your suggesting that the defending team can call a timeout during the attacking teams throwing phase, which I don't see as an option.

Without appearing to "delay" the game, sometime's the mental idea of a "timeout" can potentially allow a team to recover.

I don't think you can yell "timeout" while a team is throwing. That's just wrong.

But perhaps it isn't necessary. Just take a timeout. There's currently no rules in the game around delaying, waiting for the gust of wind to settle, etc.
