Mundo and Shyv are probably the fastest junglers. on your list, Lee and Nocturne are probably the fastest.

From your list, definitely Lee Sin and Nocturne. The rest are more of single-target junglers. I actually like Pantheon, but he's slow compared to the others.

As said above, Mundo and Shyvana are very fast. Udyr as well.

Irelia, Pantheon, and Talon are all somewhat poor jungle picks. They do much better in the lane than in the jungle, partly because all three of them have fairly slow clear times.

Of the rest, if you're looking purely at clearing speed, Nocturne is the best while Lee Sin and Xin Zhao clear the jungle at about the same speed (which is still fairly close to Nocturne's speed, maybe 5-10 seconds slower). However, in overall general power, the order is Lee Sin, Nocturne, Xin Zhao. Just something to think about.

Also, as others have said, the top 3 clear times for junglers go to Dr. Mundo, Shyvana, and Phoenix Udyr in that order. Others that are faster than Nocturne include Maokai, Skarner, Olaf, and a few niche/odd picks like Cassiopeia, Karthus, and Malzahar. As you can probably tell from the list, jungle speed is largely determined by how strong their AoE damage is. Anyway, if pure clearing speed is what you want, Dr. Mundo is the way to go.

Warwick's low level clear time is actually on the lower end of the spectrum, being only a little better than Irelia or Pantheon's clear time. He only starts to clear quickly when he gets an item or two and more levels. His jungle strength comes from being sustained and safe, thanks to his passive and Q both healing him, not from being fast.

Stonewall008 actually has a good system to explaining the strengths and weaknesses of each jungler. speed, survivability, path/build, sustained, ganking, invasion. Warwick excels in path/build and sustained, as he can start anywhere without problems, and because of natural lifesteal he can stay in the jungle forever. his ganks are very weak until he hits 6, then he becomes an excellent ganker.

Olaf I believe has the fastest possible clear time, but it is incredible unsafe as he has to be at very low hp to do it.

Nope, even with his passive and being low health he doesn't clear quite as fast 1-6 as the super AoE junglers. Dr. Mundo is the fastest with Shyvana and Phoenix Udyr being slightly slower, all three of them faster than Olaf. It's purely the AoE power: Olaf's axe doesn't do as much as the 3 mentioned champion's AoE, even counting the effective .5 second lowered cooldown and very minor early game damage buff he got on his Q with his recent buffs. It's a difference of about 10-20 seconds, so not a huge gap, but he's still slower in general.
