"On average, pages in your site take 7.9 seconds to load (updated on Apr 28, 2010). This is slower than 87% of sites. These estimates are of high accuracy (more than 1000 data points). The chart below shows how your site's average page load time has changed over the last few months. For your reference, it also shows the 20th percentile value across all sites, separating slow and fast load times."
all the "Example pages" are faster than the 7.9 average, they range between 5.8 to 7.7 and are the recently most trafficked pages.
My traffic structure is such that most of the traffic is from US to very few pages, whereas a lot of the global traffic is scattered across many pages.
I feel that the Google average comes from average page load of each individual URL irrespective of which URL gets how much visits...
