benchmarks mysql vs sql runtime engines (sqlite & hsql)

First of all i'm on a win32 platform using java. I also have mysql
installed. My question isabout benchmarks and multiple inserts &
selects
SQLITE: http://www.sqlite.org/
HSQL: http://hsqldb.sourceforge.net

I current have a mysql database of approx. 80mb.
Each day I Insert approx .5mb of new records into this table,
and I might also run mutiple Update, Delete, and Select queries as
well.
I'm trying to get an idea of how fast a sql database engine will run
given that is is inside of the JVM. I know it's going to be slower
than a db engine written in C and that's a trade off for being
portable to different operating systems.

What I want to know is how much of a trade off though - I don't want
to have to wait 10 mins or deal with screen freezing... Right
now on a windows platform using mysql things move really fast.

Can anyone give me an idea of the time delay needed to do these
Inserts in HSQL (ie: how much does the jvm slow things down)..

Thanks in advance
