CPU cycles vs. Clock cycles

Hello all,
I am using code warrior development environment for HC08. When debugging the applications by means of the full chip simulator I can get a feeling of the execution time by reading the amount of "CPU cycles" needed (in the register window).
By the way, are the "CPU cycles" corresponding to the number of clocks required to run the application or shall I multiply the CPU cycles by a certain factor to get the number of CLOCK CYCLES?
If so, which is this factor for HC08, S08, RS08?
Thank you very much...
