The Tor service might not be able to detect if your private usage is
high or not. I would suggest the solution at OS level. Typically
congestion balances according a fairness modell which stands against
your intention.

On BSD you could investigate in pf-altq and define customized queues.
But that will impact the bandwidth measurements and the consensus for
your relay.
