I mean that there are no images obtained by applying pp (and uspp as

No, I think you should use a complete video as benchmark. You can show
the values in a separate dedicated section. For example you could use
a low-quality matrix_bench.mpg.

For example:
ffmpeg -i matrixbench_mpeg2.mpg -b:v 200k matrixbench_mpeg2-lq.mpg 

ffmpeg -i matrixbench_mpeg2-lq.mpg -an -c:v rawvideo matrixbench_mpeg2-lq.rawvideo.nut
(the output is 2.8GiB here)

ffmpeg -benchmark -i matrixbench_mpeg2-lq.rawvideo.nut -vf PP -f null -

You should automate the lattest step, so that you run the command with
all the PP commands you want to test and automatically extract the
benchmark times.
