I had a cvs backup of around half your size and it took around
2-3 hours to convert. It was faster to first convert it to a dump
file and them load the dump in svn.
Also if you are using windows platform you will need to use a
later version of cvs2svn to cope with line endings. You have to set
eol-style as well as mime-type using parameters and a mime file.

A word of warning though... I hear cvs2svn times (including load)
are not only dependant on size, but also number of branches and
such. I had a very simple structure in that respect.

If possible, use a cvs backup and do trials. Also test the created
repo for possible problems if you are paranoid.

Good luck!
