/data/subversion *contains* the repositories - it is not a repository itself.

So, will the /data/subversion/repo01, /data/subversion/repo02, ... /data/subversion/repo110 automatically be created, or do I have to make them myself?

no, just an empty, randomly named repository.

You need to have as many repositories on the far side as you need
mirroring for. The on-disk data will look like this: conf  db  format 
hooks  locks  README.txt
Each of these is a synchronization unit and needs to be set up
separately. svn does not help you above that level, and below that any
structure only exists inside the repository tree which is replicated.

Depends if /data/subversion IS the repository, or CONTAINS repositories.
