On the 100 mph question

Isn't it more likely that the military official who told ABC that Sgrena's car "was traveling in excess of 100 mph" is a little confused about the metric system and meant to say "100 kph"? That would be about 60 mph, still too fast for a bombed out Baghdad road yet consistent with Sgrena's (or at least, one of her contradictory) version and the US version of the story.
