My personal preference is that there should only be one tag for any
particular speed (otherwise, if max_speed and max_speed:mph are wildly
different when converted to whatever standard you're using, which one do you
use?) and that tag should always state the units, but just pedantically
speaking, on a point that has no bearing on the actual matter:
The SI (derived) unit for speed is metres per second.
