If the writer of Genesis wanted to convey the idea of long ages, he could have used the word “olam”, meaning a long indefinite span of time, instead of “Yom.” He could have expressed the long age similar to how he talked to Abraham about his descendants:
"indeed I will greatly bless you, and I will greatly multiply your seed as the stars of the heavens and as the sand which is on the seashore." Genesis 22:17
He could have said something like: If you can count the stars, that’s how many descendants you will have. If you can count the stars, that is how many days it took me to create. We would have understood that it was a long period of time.
