For tiled images, the GDAL OpenJPEG driver currently still read whole tiles (perhaps this 
should be re-considered at some point), so sub-tile decoding improvements will not help 
here, and you won't get more than the improvements done during 2.2.0, so something like 
20% for openjpeg single-threaded (your mileage may vary), or more if you enable
