Hmm, it's the Ethernet
   12 root     -68    -     0K   288K WAIT    2   0:37  5.66% {irq256: bge0}

What could this mean?

Try pressing 'H' in top to see separate threads, this should give 
you a hint who eats cpu.  8% system at 100r/s seems a bit too many 
for me, too.  But I really doubt it's nginx related.
