	Where did you find this chart?  The "Move" value is wrong on it.
Assuming outdoor movement (ie. 1" = 10 yards), SR 1 equals:

     17 miles   1 hour   1760 yards    498.67 yards
     -------- X ------ X ---------- =  ------------ = ~50"
       hour     60 min     1 mile          min

	The other option is that the "Miles Per Hour" column is wrong.
I vaguely remember somewhere that atmospheric movement was 1/2 normal
spelljamming (ie. SR 1 = 8.5 mph), which would make the second column
("Move") mostly correct.  The last row should be:

SR: 9		157 miles per hour	216" move

	Hope that helps... (:

ps.  ADEPT, did you find this chart in one of the suppliments?
