I think it's ambiguous. While it's clear that it's a 427% increase in speed and a 77% decrease in slowness, "speed-up" might refer to either of those, and also to the 77% reduction in execution time.
For practical use, I believe per centages of execution time are more useful than per centages of speed because time is the limited resource.
