That is all correct, if you want to access the repository via the
svn:// protocol. But you said you want to access it via ssh, meaning
the svn+ssh:// protocol. For that setup, you do not run a daemon, and
I believe you do not use any user data in the svnserve.config file
either.

If you have already created Linux system users, then they can access
the repository via svn+ssh:// using those usernames and passwords.
Subversion never sees those passwords; they're handled by your
server's ssh daemon.
