So, there really is no solution for this except improving your hard ware. Perhaps an SSD. Assuming you have disabled any Antivirus scan and indexing in windows on the folder you are doing your svn work in... there's not really much more to do.

You're making an assumption that the timing gap between Linux &
Windows is linear as checkout size increases. It will greatly depend
upon a number of factors and in all likelihood it will not be linear.
