The iCloud backup only contains camera roll photos, not photo stream photos. If your photo stream photos are not saved to your camera roll, open your My Photo Stream album, tap Edit, Tap all of the photos you want to save, tap Share, then tap Save to Camera Roll. You can then either back them up to iCloud as part of your iCloud backup or import them to your computer, as outlined here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4083. I strongly recommend that you import them to your computer as this is far safer than relying on your backup.
