Do you mean 250 Mbit/sec ? 

You should get much more.. how are you measuring the performance?
What benchmark are you using? 

Are both the eth0 and eth1 connected to the same network/vlan? 

When you run the network benchmark try running "xm top" 
to monitor the overall cpu usage.. also run "top" in dom0
to see if there's a big cpu usage in dom0.
