Even if you just run "bonnie++" with no parameters it will be a LOT better 
than hdparm at predicting what real performance is likely to be like.

For any detailed settings you need to have an idea of what your applications 
will do (something I am not aware of and can't easily advise on).

For an even more real-world test install a mail server and use Postal.
