 As of 0.22, mythweather presents wind speed as kph (kilometers per hour?)
 when user selects SI units. This is problematic:

 -"kph" is normally written "km/h".(?)

 - The SI-unit for speed is meters per second("m/s").

 - Users selecting SI units probably expects m/s.

 Another issue with wind speed is that many users around the world uses
 knots and Beaufort, so a simple SI/English units preference  is really not
 enough. Most sw out there displaying wind speed have preferences to
 display the speed either as  mph,knots,Beaufort or m/s.

 This might or might not affect the grabber interface depending on how
 things are implemented. However, in the long run I think SI units should
 mean just SI units (i. e., m/s) also in the grabber interface.
