It depends on where you're measuring from. From the client, you have to include the round trip time for the query to leave app, go to the server, get processed, and return success or failure along with all the data. That time is different than the time it takes the query to run on the server. Most of the time when doing performance tuning we tend to focus on that server time, but you need to be aware of the other as well.
