Don't forget though that bigger tiles also mean a more "blocky"  appearance.  When
I was writing a tile-based game for DOS a couple years back I switched to a tile
have the size and the graphics looked alot better,  they looked less tile-based, if
that makes any since.
So speed isn't the only issue.
