Well I'm assuming the idea is to use this for route planning, but also for
warning when you exceed the speed limit (like TomTom does) - so being in the
local units would be preferred.

What do people use for speed limits in the UK? The "maxspeed=" tag is
supposed to be in km/hr. I've started using "maxspeed=30mph", is that
consistent with what others are using? Or should we have "maxspeed=30;

maxspeed=48 ?
