The short answer is that Jade is fast, but your performance is going
to depend more upon your processor speed, your available memory, the
complexity of your stylesheet, and the size of your documents than
upon the results anyone else gets using Jade; and since the latest
version of Jade came out today, whatever performance heuristics anyone
had yesterday have changed ever so slightly today.

Since you know the DTD, the formatting requirements, and the size of
the documents and you may well know the type of machine upon Jade
would run, why don't you get the publicly-available stylesheet that
most closely matches your requirements, pump up a sample document
until it matches your target size, and see what results you get
running Jade on a sample machine.
