From what I understand from:
http://marc.info/?l=postfix-users&m=120612390511480

Only 20 maxproc will be used, even if you specify higher in the
smtp-amavis transport in master.cf. If you need more than 20, better
to leave at the default (-) and set:
smtp-amavis_destination_concurrency_limit = N
in main.cf

For your setup, I would try between 20 and 30 for the value of N
(along with $max_servers)

6 seconds seems somewhat typical. Mostly due to network tests. Some
RBLs are no longer and you could turn the non functional RBL rules off
by setting to 0. I'm not sure which ones though. Maybe someone else
knows.
