It can be a bit of minefield with the 6500 line cards :-)
If you have a Sup 2 but no Switch Fabric Module (which takes up a separate slot) then all your cards are running on the shared 32Gbps. So as it is shared between these modules it is difficult to give an average speed per port.
In additon a blade like the WS-X6548-GE-TX has a 1Mb buffer size per port but then groups 8 ports together so you end up with 1Mb for 8 ports. This again will have an effect.
It is a easier to do average speeds when you have fabric enabled linecards with either a Sup2 + SFM or a SUP720 as they have dedicated connection to switch fabric.
Note your 6516 & 6548 are fabric enabled but as you don't have an SFM they must use the 32Gbps bus.
Here's a link that covers the capabilties of all the 6500 modules.

I am going to design and build an LAN network under a tunnel underground with long distance between the switches.
I will have 2 Catalyst switches and 8 Industrial IE3000, and they will be connected with fiber.
