Got an "almost correct for "per hour" with a suggestion to use "perhour" (not existent in my knowledge).

No, not to mine either. It just needed a space. Next time it should show up corrected. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.

i wrote "per hour" (with space) and it still told me another correct solution that was identical to what I wrote...

On the Incubator I see both "an hour" and "per hour" so both are accepted and the other is an alternative. (the "per hour" of course without a space).

Thoughts on also accepting the abbreviations kph or km/h for kilometers an/per hour?

Is the 's absolutely necessary? 'the car speed is eighty kilometers an hour' is marked wrong.

It's... colloquial, at best. Formally or semi-casually you would still use 's/of.

I think " speed of the car" would be more natural .

We've added "car speed" as an alternative translation.

Do you say 'χιλιόμετρα ανα ώρα' every time, or is there an acronym used commonly (like kmph/kph)?

You might see the whole phrase or something like "χιλιόμετρα/ώρα" or "χλμ/ώρα". I don't think it's as consistent as it is in English.

This is a list of the known abbreviations of this phrase (under "Notation history"). It would be meaningless to add them all, I, personally, would opt for "kph".
