This is exactly what I saw in my profiling. More complex queries did
still seem to take longer than less complex ones, but it was a second
order effect compared to the overall volume of queries. 

I'm not sure that network was the culprit though, since my ping
roundtrip time was small relative to the wall time I measured for each
nova.db.api call.
