You should use -f null for benchmarking. And add -vsync 0 for webm since it's likely that there will be double the number of output frames (this only really matters outside of -f null though.)

With higher cache-unfriendly resolutions it should be more, e.g. with sintel_trailer_1080p_vp8_vorbis.webm on my Penryn (x86-64):

real	0m18.670s
user	0m18.359s
sys	0m0.116s

real	0m23.498s
user	0m23.348s
sys	0m0.130s
