The MDX you have written is correct to get count of issues with Hours spent. It is true that such a calculation could take some time in case of many issues and it would be more efficient to pre-calculate this.
Nevertheless in this case the pre-calculation would not provide such a dynamic result. For example it would be possible to pre-calculate that a user updated an issue on a certain date and no longer count if the same user updates issue in the same month (to get the distinct count). Now if this user again logs hours next month, then again the issue would be counted - on monthly hierarchy this would give correct result, but on Yearly level the count would not be distinct as issue would be counted every month it was updated.
Let me know though if you would like this report on some specific Time level and it would not matter for other levels and you would need assistance with the JIRA Misc field to pre-calculate this.
