Interesting question.

I find information on the web scarce, but here (*) it states "In 
practice, configuration with clamd and squidclamav is fastest".

(*) https://wiki.squid-cache.org/ConfigExamples/ContentAdaptation/C-ICAP

Is that wrong? Outdated?
Also, squidclamav allows for whitelists, which I don't see mentioned in 
the other setups.

Do you believe any of the different configuration outlined in that 
document is better?

What do you suggest?
I-CAP + clamd?
I-CAP + libclamav?

Keep in mind I will run clamd anyway for other services.

Or should I ignore that document completely and use something else?

Also, I heard about e-cap, but IIUIC it's still immature. Is that correct?

In any case, are you getting satisfactory performance? Did you need any 
tweak to ClamAV config?

  bye & Thanks
