>> what is the best option for me? airport collection or direct purchase from SBB ticket shop?
Either would do, but ordering in advance for airport collection might entail an additional fee.
If you order for airport collection, they will email you a voucher to exchange for your ordered passes and a PDF map with directions for finding the collection point, which is usually the Airport Information Service Centre.
Either way, you will need to make sure you are arriving during opening hours of the SBB ticket office, or the Airport Information Service Centre.
>> If so at airport, will I have to wait for long time to collect/validate the pass?
No one can tell you that in advance. It will depend on time of day and other unpredictable factors. When I picked up a Tell-Pass at the airport in August 2016 (having arrived at 8:30am), I only had to wait a few minutes in the queue. At other times, it could easily be longer. It is just as likely that there will be queues at the SBB ticket office.
