        It never occurred to me that anyone would have any difficulty
        understanding the notion of "speed". After all, we deal with it
        every
        day when driving.


Yeh sure.  Like "I made the trip to grandmother's house in 0.25
trips/hour!.  That's 25% faster than last week when I only drove at 0.2
trips/hour."
I say that all the time.  ;-)

One does say miles per hour or kilometers per hour, which is the same exact notion.
