Copied from the manual:

Subversion uses its internal diff engine, which produces unified diff
format, by default. If you want diff output in a different format,
specify an external diff program using --diff-cmd and pass any flags
you'd like to it using the --extensions switch. For example, to see
local differences in file foo.c in context output format while
ignoring whitespace changes, you might run svn diff --diff-cmd
/usr/bin/diff --extensions '-bc' foo.c.
