### What is speed measured is units of?

Speed is often measured in units of distance divided by time;
for example, meters/second, or kilometers per hour.There are also
units of speed that are not derived from lengths and times - such
as knots, or fraction of the speed of light (for instance, 1/10 of
the speed of light might be expressed as "0.1c".
