The cache latencies are listed in the Intel 64 and IA32 Architectures Optimization Reference
Sect. 2.1.5 for Core architecture:
L1 3 cycles
L2 14-15 cycles
Sect. 2.2.4 for Nehalem architecture:
L1 4 cycles
L2 ~10 cycles
L3 35-40+ cycles
Please read the respective sections for a more precise description.
