Having done this recently:

$ svnadmin create repo
$ svn co url://to/repo wc
$ cd wc
$ svn mkdir branches tags
$ svn ci -m "Initial layout"
$ cd ..

(notice that trunk is missing from that list)

Go to your bzr branch, and do this:

$ bzr push url://to/repo/trunk

That will create trunk from your branch, and push the mainline
revisions in there.  If you bind your branch to the svn repo, then
every time you commit, it will go straight to SVN:

$ bzr bind :push

Hope that helps!
