I doubt this extrapolation makes sense, because the effort to verify a
revision depends on the nature of the changes made in the revision.
Perhaps some earlier revisions contain huge imports and are thus expensive
to verify?

Please provide more information about this repository, in particular
the output of 'svnadmin info', and the number of directory entries,
average file sizes, etc. ('svnfsfs stats' will show these numbers).

There are a lot of variables involved so it's hard to give you good
advice without more detailed information. See here for more context:

There is now a --metadata-only option for 'svnadmin verify' but it's hard
to tell if this would help your particular case since it's unclear which
repository format you are using.
