If at 640x480 winuae is 5 fps (without JIT), then maybe it's even less with dosbox! (confirmed now that i saw your update)
But this comparison as Tony said is just silly.
In any case, the dosbox team don't care about optimising it (i should say, prefer correctness VS speed), and it uses SDL, so maybe that's the reason it is sooooooo slow.
