The only way to do it with nginx is to use request bandwidth 
limits with connection number limits.  See:

This can't effectively limit bandwidth for many small requests and 
doesn't allow flexible aggregate limits though.  So it's probably 
better to use your firewall for bandwidth limiting instead.
