I have the idea that it starts at 24 hours because Blizzard specifically said it starts at 24 hours and increases from there.
According to the Silence Penalty blog post directly from Blizzard:

"The first time a player is silenced, their chat will be restricted for 24 hours. This duration will double for each silence penalty received after the first, and there is no maximum. This means that players who receive multiple silence penalties may find themselves unable to chat for a very, very long time."

I've certainly never been silenced before, I would have complained about it here.
Unless they've quietly made the system much more draconian, a 7-day ban implies otherwise. It's worth noting that the penalties never "decay" or go away; if you were silenced five times in three years, you'd have the same duration as someone silenced five times in three months.
