The speed is the distance traveled divided by the time it takes to travel that distance. In this case we with divide 8 kilometers by 10 minutes to get 0.8 km/minute. One hour is sixty minutes, so this works out to 48 km/hour.

How many kilometers long are tornadoes?

There are several ways to interpret that. Path length is how far a tornado travels. The average path length is 8 kilometers, the longest was just over 350 kilometers. The shortest was just over 2 meters. Some people use the term "long" for what is more correctly the width, or diameter of a tornado. The average width is 45 meters. The smallest are just a few meters wide, the largest was 4 kilometers wide. Finally it could describe how tall the tornado is. Most tornadoes are 8 to 16 kilometers tall.
