I would like to know if there is a single-word hypernym for day, month, week and year.

Their hypernym would be based in their singular aspect of similarity — into what set can they all fit. So words like time and span (or even time span) would do the trick assuming you mean a duration. If you mean a specific period then try, um, period.
