First thing that may be wrong is the understanding of the time
figures. The documentation is not clear about them and the -h option
is not working :

client6# time -h tar -cf - /usr > /dev/null
-h: Command not found.

Just a sidenote, you are probably getting a version of time integrated
to your shell. The -h option works fine in /usr/bin/time, so run like this:

client6# /usr/bin/time -h tar -cf - /usr > /dev/null

Very true, this is it :-) Thanks a lot for your help !
