'svn st -u' and look at the last line printed.

'svn ls -v'. Or if you're using the API, call RA->check_path()

That's all you can do. The svn client library has no separate concepts
of "Repository Root" and "Path within the Repository". At the moment,
there's no way for an svn client to know where that line is drawn in the
middle of the URL. Your technique is probably the best there is.
