I'd suggest to actually store your objects to find out. But storing is only half the work. Retrival and update, as well as schema extension, concurrency etc. are more interesting. Just storing means a plain mmapped file will sure outperform any RDBMS :-)
The basic question for choosing RDBMS over ZODB: do you have strong or weak relations between your data. The ZODB is good for dealing with objects that have no or weak relations to each other. If you have strong and complex relations between your data better use a RDBMS. SQL is perfect for dealing with such data...there is nothing similar you can do with Zope or the ZODB.
