svn can't get the unversioned files back. Unless you have some other
backup of them, or some undelete utility, you're out of luck.

For the versioned files, do "svn status", and see if those deletes are
still scheduled to be committed. If so, then use "svn revert" to undo
the deletes. If the deletes were committed, then you do a reverse
merge; this is in the svn book.
