That's all the past data that everyone agrees on, what remains after smooshing. The tiny files are new transactions that haven't been synced in by everyone (and subsequently smooshed). How many actions do you have in your file? You can find this in the terminal by doing
sqlite3 ~/Library/Caches/com.omnigroup.OmniFocus/OmniFocusDatabase2 'select count(*) from Task;'
I've got 7165 actions in my db, which occupies 870 kb. I have very few files imbedded in the notes, but I would guess you might have some judging from the size of your file.
I wouldn't assume that iPhone sync time is necessarily only dependent on the time it takes to read or write that file; the iPhone isn't going to be much competition for your desktop machine in a cpu benchmark -- it's gonna get smooshed! Okay, I admit it, I like that technical term Lizard gave us :D
