Speed, a scalar quantity, is the distance (a scalar quantity) per time ratio.

 Orbital Speed Characterization @ Encyclopedia.LocalColorArt.com (Local Color Encyclopedia)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The orbital speed of a body, generally a planet, a natural satellite, an artificial satellite, or a multiple star, is the speed at which it orbits around the barycenter of a system, usually around a more massive body.
It can be used to refer to either the mean orbital speed, the average speed as it completes an orbit, or instantaneous orbital speed, the speed at a particular point in its orbit.
This is still a simplified version; it doesn't allow for elliptical orbits, but it does at least allow for bodies of similar masses.
