By big bus:

Kampot to Kep is about an hour
Kep to Phnom Penh should be about 4.5 hours
Phnom Penh to Siem Reap is about 6 hours

By car:

Kampot to Kep is about 30 minutes
Kep to Phnom Penh should be about 2.5 hours
Not sure about PP to SR - I've only every caught the bus!

These times are all approximate because if there's lots of traffic leaving the city, or rain, it can add to the journey time.

Not sure you'll make BKK to Sihanouville in 1 day.
Once in Cambodia any times you are told by the ticket seller will be more inacurate than a British Rail timetable!!
Trip from SR back to BKK takes from 9 -12 hours depending on how many times the bus stops on the way to Poipet and how quick you clear the border & get your onward bus.
But why so worried about times? You're on holiday! If you are starting a trip thinking everything is timed to the minute, well, I've not found Cambodia to be like that!!
