I agree with everyone else - just knit at the speed and in the style you're comfortable with. Speedy knitting is only required for a speedy knitting competition or if you're wanting to finish something yesterday and even then it gets too stressful.

In answer to your question, I am slow and infrequent.

I knit garter relatively fast I suppose but when I have to pearl and do other stitches I slow down a lot. I typically have to take breaks between rows anyway because my wrists are messed up from working in factories my whole life. the longer I knit, the less breaks I need though as my wrists must start to get used to the movement.
like others, I have a hard time finding the time to knit. I took the last 7 months off because I have been working 7 days a week 74 hrs a week. that don't leave much time for you to do much of anything lol them knitting machines are looking better and better everyday lol.

When I knit garter I average at 1 stitch per second and stockinette about the same speed but things like rib and especially lace and cabling I do at a slower average speed.

I would say the average speed for knitting is close to 1 stitch per second.

Slower in the summer and faster in the winter. It depends if I have to switch wool or keep with one type and stitch!
