When you are comparing two things, the 'er', or comparitive, adjective is used. When three or more things are compared, the 'est', or superlative, form is used. In your sentence, 'speedier' would be the correct word. 'Faster' means the same as 'speedier' and is more commonly used.

But if we look at your sentence, both clauses are saying the same thing. I would just use a single clause and make this a simple sentence. 'Cheetah' has an 'h' on the end.

 

The cheetah can run faster than the gazelle.

or

The cheetah is speedier than the gazelle.

 

More speedy has the same meaning as speedier.
