The svnadmin program will recognize the forward slashes in the path and
operate correctly, even on Windows. However, Windows mkdir command
doesn't recognize the forward slash as a valid path seperator, only the
backslash.

If you do this:

    md \path\to
    svnadmin create /path/to/repos

it should work. At least it does on my Windows XP Pro, SP2 machine.
