I'm planning on walking the Brecon Horseshoe soon.... Pen Y Fan etc.

I'd like to record my achievement, has anyone used a Wahoo Elemnt Bolt for walking or is it purely an ( excellent ) bike gps unit.

Do I need to change any settings if I do use it ... eg autopause ?

It’s in my pocket on the schoolrun. The last bit I walk from the playground to the pick up area. No issues. It’s accurate enough to show (when you zoom in) which side of the road you are, so I imagine it should be ok.

Which body appendage are you going to bolt it to?

Yep, works a treat. Also handy for preplanning your walk and following the route when walking!

Whilst not a Wahoo unit, my wife and I used the newer version of the Garmin Edge touring while up in the Peak District last year.
It was really useful, especially for seeing which branch of a track to follow when the path was a bit ambiguous.

I have used my Garmin Edge 200, kept in a jacket pocket to record walks, no issues.
You may have to change the settings from cycling to walking when (if) you upload the activity, on Strava or similar.

I used mine yesterday and it kept auto pausing
Can you switch auto pause off?

I have a Garmin and generally keep it switched off unless I have a particularly long ride and I'm worried about battery (although whether it would have any effect on battery usage I don't know, it's mainly superstition)
