The listing has already expired, so I can't look at the actual bike.

It's not quick release tires, it's quick release wheels. On the plus side, you need no tools to remove your wheels. On the minus side, no one else needs tools either. Most modern bikes have quick releases for a pretty wide range of parts, and have since about the mid 1980s, so this isn't a special feature that I'd trumpet in an ad.

If it's 13 miles round trip... pretty much any bike can do that as long as it sorta kinda fits (tho it will be more comfortable on a bike that fits well). If it's 13 miles each way, it might be prudent to learn a bit about bike fitting. 26 miles is long enough that you can have Interesting Medical Issues if the bike is too big or too small or has a saddle that acts as a butt-torture device.
