    Have you looked in the cpbackup log files that are created when the backup is running - maybe You have alot of "waiting for load to go down to continue" ?
    ( look for the log-files at /usr/local/cpanel/logs/cpbackup/ )

    Do You run "incremental backups" (That usually save alot of time and CPU) ?

    What is the serverload avarage while backup is running? You might try edit the value "The load average above the number of cpus..." in WHM-panel's "Tweak Settings" to something higher than 0 if You notice Your serverload is high - but please don't set it to high, that might cause too much serverload.
