This is more than two years old and it is possible that current
FFmpeg git head contains more optimizations for arm (I don't
know). If they exist, they should make a measurable difference.

In any case, don't expect miracles, there is nothing obviously
wrong with your command line, but you can always compare
with x264 ultrafast, it may be faster, I never tested.
