Usually tape restore take at least 1.5 time the backup time. The MPX factor plays a leading role here.

Assumption is the mother of all mess ups.

Example: Your backup took 2 hours

According to Nicolai's point (which is true), the restore for the same data would take at least 3 hours, this is assuming MPX=1. It would take longer if you set higher MPX (multiplex) value.
