From what i know it is relative to the particular regulations of the country.
Aust Regulations state the following: these are ICAO compliant as far as i KNOW so regs around the world should not vary too much.

ENR 1.5 para 3.2

Unless otherwise specified, holding procedures are subject to the following limitations:
a speed: IAS must no exceed

1) up to and including FL140
-230 kt, or
-170kt for holding, limited to Cat A & B aircraft only;

2) above FL140 up to and including FL200, 240kt; and

3) above FL200, 265kt.

Note: above the highest MSA in turbulent conditions, speeds may be increased to the lesser of 280kt or M0.8 subject to ATC aproval in CTA.
