I can only go by my own experience and hope this is helpful. Others will have their own methods.
I cooked a 2 kilo gammon joint yesterday in a 7 litre HO. The instructions are now in the A-Z. There is also a recipe for a smaller 3lb roast pork there too posted by sdmcc.
In a conventional oven the advice is 35 min per 450g (1LB) and 35 mins extra at 180C.
In the HO, I reduce temperature and cooking time.
For a 4lb joint you are probably looking at around 2 hours in the HO.
The cooking times for pork/gammon are much the same. I loosely wrapped my gammon in foil to stop it drying out but with a pork joint you would want a crispy crackling and would omit this step.
Depending on the shape/thickness of your joint, times may vary a bit. Test with a skewer to make sure juices run clear.
