I'm running Ubuntu 11.10 with xmonad. How do I configure repeat speed and delay of the keyboard? Is there a graphical tool or I'll have to edit some config file?

Try man xset:

$ xset r rate 1000 200

will set dalay to one second and repeat rate to 200 chars per second.
This is not xmonad-related, but you can put your xset command to the xmonad config:

startupHook = spawn "xset r rate 200 20"
