It's in the documentation on my system.

       -u The -u (user) option causes sudo to run the specified command
          as a user other than root.

...from 'man sudo'.

If you meant the svnadmin documentation - well, svnadmin behaves
exactly like almost all Unix commands: it creates output files as its
own user. I can't imagine what else anyone would expect. If you want
to create files owned by user 'foo', the thing to do is to become user
'foo' before creating them. Nothing specific to svn here.
