The query plan is all garbled by mail , could you resend?  Or post a link from

To see if the query is causing many writes (due to dirty pages, sorts, etc),
run with explain(analyze,buffers) 

But from what I could tell, your problems are here:

->  Parallel Seq Scan on lineitem  (cost=0.00..5861332.93 rows=100005093 
width=41) (actual TIME=3.494..842667.110 rows=80004097 loops=3)
->  Parallel Seq Scan on lineitem  (cost=0.00..5861333.40 rows=100005140 
width=41) (actual TIME=41.805..224438.909 rows=80004097 loops=3)

->  Seq Scan on partsupp (cost=0.00..1052983.08 rows=31999708 width=22) (actual 
TIME=0.033..228828.149 rows=32000000 loops=3)
->  Seq Scan on partsupp  (cost=0.00..1052934.38 rows=31994838 width=22) 
(actual TIME=0.037..37865.003 rows=32000000 loops=3)            

Can you reproduce the speed difference using dd ?
time sudo dd if=/dev/sdX of=/dev/null bs=1M count=32K skip=$((128*$RANDOM/32)) 
# set bs to optimal_io_size 

Or: bonnie++ -f -n0

What OS/kernel are you using?  LVM?  filesystem?  I/O scheduler?  partitions?
readahead?  blockdev --getra

If you're running under linux, maybe you can just send the output of:
for a in /sys/block/sdX/queue/*; do echo "$a `cat $a`"; done
or: tail
