We may use the Unix time (the time you can see from "ls -l") of the
empty directories as their committing time, assuming they have not been
modified after their creation (since they are empty :-).

I can see this workaround might have a little timing problem. For example,

   -- D1 (dir)
    +- F1 (file)
    +- D2 (empty dir)

D2 might have an early creation time than the first commit time of F1. I
guess (since I haven't read a bit of svn's source code) D1 is converted
into SVN using the same (first) commit time as F1. So we might need to
commit D1&D2 first, earlier than F1.
