What is leading to confusion is to suggest that km/h is the default
unit for waterway speed when  knot is in use everywhere. Please think
as a contributor, not as QA programmer or data consumer (it's easy to
check if the speed limit belongs to a waterway or not).
And "The knot is a non-SI unit that is "accepted for use with the SI"
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knot_%28unit%29)
