This method can be used with SD cards of any size, only when your internal memory is 16GB I wouldn't see why you would swap that with a 8GB external SD card, or a SD card of the same size. There's nothing to gain. When you do this mod on the other hand with a 32GB or a 64GB SD card you gain space.

Look at it as if you bought the cheaper 16GB model and upgrade it to a 32GB or a 64GB model, not by soldering in another memory module but the easy way with this softmod.

As for the speed it will be limited by the speed of the SD card. This may vary from SD to SD, faster SDs tend to be more expensive. The card I have used is slightly slower then the internal memory, but it is not an issue.
