He had a lot of internal angst as his conscience started rebelling against being a BladeRunner.  She was an android, but he was falling in love with her and was angry at himself.  He didn't know who to trust.  He was also angry because she was trying to deny her feelings for him.  It all came out as rage.  Have to remember:  he's a basically violent person.  That was part of the Frankensteinean point of BladeRunner... who was really the monster, the androids, or Decker?

Deckard was rough because he doesn't know how to act... he's an android himself, and lacks appropriate emotional response.  This was what Ridley Scott tried to elucidate on in the director's cut.

Because Deckard is a replicant, he doesn't know how to act on his feelings for Rachel.  But he needs to act on them, so physically stops Rachel from leaving, and tries to teach her how to say she loves him, too.

It reflects the inner battle within himself, he has spent years blowing away the replicants and now he finds himself drawn to one of them romantically.

Also you have to remember that Rachael is not a person but a machine, why does he (in his mind set) have to treat her particurly nicely.  "You're a machine and you'll do what I'll tell you to do".  ie,"Put your hands on me" etc etc.

I tend to agree with a lot of the other answers here.  I feel that Deckard is having a battle within himself.  He knows he is falling in love with Rachel and a part of him is mad at himself for allowing that.  He is also upset with Rachel because she is covering her true feelings for him by trying to walk away.  Deckard is battling the idea of who to trust, himself included.  His actions stem from rage and confusion.
