How strong are 700cc wheels?

Having recently started road biking (normally I ride a mtb) I was wondering how strong the wheels on my road bike are. Can they handle rough pot-holded roads, the odd kerb up/down?
There is a short stretch of very rough tarmac on my regular commute and would like to know how slow I should be going on this - other than for the comfort factor.
