[SSL] Initial Connection takes very long time

I'm using nginx 1.5.7 for SSL termination for my websites (no encryption
betwwen nginx-origin servers).

This is my test result:
http://www.webpagetest.org/result/131209_M2_BYF/1/details/ you can see it
took more than 9 seconds for initiation

My SSL config part in nginx.conf: 

ssl_session_cache   shared:TLSSL:10m;
ssl_session_timeout 10m;
ssl_protocols   SSLv3 TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2;
ssl_prefer_server_ciphers on;
ssl_certificate server.crt;
ssl_certificate_key server.key;

I know it have to trade on high encryption, but 9 seconds is too slow to
init a new connection. I highly appreciate your comments to help me to
reduce that waiting time. Thanks.
