And I encourage you to ask "is this a one time import" or an "ongoing
import"?
For your speed data a one time import might be OK.
For something like store locations, which change all the time, the data
might just get stale in OSM.

The proper term for matching up data like this is 'conflation', and that
sometimes involves one or more identifiers
you'd call conflation keys or match targets.  These could be database
primary keys, road names, or route numbers.
