I didn't look into the weirdness of your timestamps, frame rate, and
timebase, but you can eliminate the color source and the overlays by
using pad and hstack instead. Should be faster and simpler:

ffmpeg -i a.webm -i b.webm -filter_complex \
"[0:v]fps=25,scale=320x240:force_original_aspect_ratio=decrease,pad=320:240:(ow-iw)/2:(oh-ih)/2[l]; \
 [1:v]fps=25,scale=320x240:force_original_aspect_ratio=decrease,pad=320:240:(ow-iw)/2:(oh-ih)/2[r]; \
 [l][r]hstack=inputs=2:shortest=1[v]" \
-map "[v]" output
