From what I remember the Microblaze is a much more simple RISC CPU compared to 68060, particularly the CISC addressing vs RISC? (Although reading the specification of v7.30 I do wonder!) I wonder what speeds you get with the Microblaze + FPU (not at all a good comparison for 060 but Xilinx don't quote speeds for the two on their site).
I got the info here (both Spartan-6 and Virtex-6 listed):

Then I just picked one which seemed to have enough logic cells (gates) to fit 68060 based on this table.

BTW: I'm using the SP605 board for my current projects.
