My busybox images usually run under 500K, statically linked. But the working set for the init portion is smaller than that. I haven't compared this to the working set for systemd, but if the difference in working set size is comparable to the difference in binary size (including required libraries), then I still think busybox init is going to load up faster than systemd.
