So there are two issues here.  One, the script doesn't obey

Can anyone shed any light on the first?  Are NSE scripts supposed to 
obey --host-timeout?  Is there a way for the script to get that 
information from nmap api?

Yes, NSE (and all other parts of Nmap) need to enforce --host-timeout.
The scripts themselves don't need to worry about it--Nmap itself
should abandon probing a host when the timeout hits.  This doesn't
seem to be working for NSE, and that is an important bug which needs
to be fixed.
