I am seeing slow disk I/O performance on VirtualBox 3.0.12 running on Mac OS 10.5.7. I posted to the forums, and I didn't get a solution. There is detailed information in my forum post here:

Let me know if there's any other info I can provide.

As of VBox 3.2.0, the VMM uses another technique to access the host disk. So it would be nice if you could redo your benchmark with VBox 3.2.8 (and use a SATA controller for your VM, see VM settings).
