You are going too slow if your material is melting or burning, too fast if your cut is ugly or you break something. Start with a 2D pen drawing, then mill some foam, then soft stuff like pine. By then you will probably have a good sense of what it should sound and look like while it is cutting. Experience is key, Hard numbers are not given by many because every machine will require something different.
