Subversion workspace have 4 or 5 more files than CVS workspace, so the transfer/creation of these files on the disk can take more time.
Are you doing your checkout on a local drive of your client or through NFS or samba on a network drive ?
My experience is that if you are doing it on a local drive, the bottleneck is probably the server and it should not be much slower than with CVS. But if you are doing your checkout on a network drive, the bottleneck is probably the network tranfer and can be many times (about 4 times slower in my case) than CVS.
