Why does svn co take much longer than cvs co?

I was hoping to migrate from CVS to SVN.
I have my CVS repository in a directory called cvsroot.

$ du -sh cvsroot
1.6G cvsroot

I used cvs2svn to create a new svn repository. It took 24 hours, but it
finished without an error. I did something like,
'cvs2svn -s svnroot cvsroot'

For starters, I was wondering if it was normal that the svn repo was
about 12 times the size of the CVS repo?

$ du -sh svnroot
18G svnroot

The problem I am having now, is that it is taking a *very* *very* long
time to do a 'svn co'. It usually takes under 1 minute to do a 'cvs co'.
It has taken svn 10 minutes so far, and it's still going.

Does this mean that svn is not a good fit for my repo? or is there
something I could be doing wrong?
