The slowest UDMA CF card is 3 times faster than a Class 10 SD card and the 7D can write 13 times faster to a UDMA 6 CF card than to a Class 10 SD card.

Not really. SD cards are rated for the minimum speed (read or write) while the CF cards are rated for the maximum speed (read or write). But...

In general CF cards are usually faster than SD cards. Both Sandisk and Lexar have CF cards that are faster than any current SD card. This doesn't mean that the camera does support it.
