How many drives support that filesystem?
How many inodes does it have?

It depends on how fast you expect that to happen and how much
memory you have. 'man xfs_repair' says that "The default size is
set to use up the remainder of 75% of the system's physical RAM
size" which seems pretty good to me. You may want to increase
the '-o ihash' value too, or '-m'. Also check the '-P' option.
BTW I just noticed in the same 'man xfs_repair' the option that
"can significantly reduce repair times on concat based filesystems"
which is so amusing...
