What I'm trying to determine is how fast an I/O port pin can be toggled. I imagine if you don't have any rounding or instruction fetching overhead, the period will be about 1.25us (two accesses of five 8 MHz cycles).

If there is no rounding up (say, running from ROM or fast RAM) and no DMA taking bus ownership, then yes, it would be exactly 5 cycles. And if you somehow can avoid all processor overhead, then you could indeed write to the PSG every 5 cycles.
