svnserve is not a web service. A "web service" uses HTTP, and svnserve does not.

You can't serve Subversion via IIS. If serving via Apache, no the
repository doesn't need to be in the docroot (analgous to IIS's
wwwroot), in fact you probably shouldn't do it. You configure
Apache/mod_svn to indicate where the repository is located on the
local filesystem.

But again, you can't serve Subversion via IIS.

I urge you to read the Server Configuration section of The Book [1] to
get a good understanding of the various ways that Subversion
repositories can be served.
