Subversion should be able to handle those sizes. I am not sure what the theoretical limits are, but I am confident that they are very much higher than your requirements.
Not all Subversion operations are optimized for bulk data transfer speed. For example, you might find that a Subversion "export" operation is as fast as a plain copy over Samba but a Subversion "checkout" operation is several times slower.
Subversion is very different from Samba, so its performance speed characteristics are different. For example, the bottleneck for "checkout" can be the client CPU speed rather than disk or network speed.
