Why "wIpaw" and not "mapaw"?

Because the Klingon verb paw can take the arrival point as its object. In English we have to say "arrive at/on", but in Klingon the "at/on" is already included in the verb when used with an object. Thus Qo'noS is the object of the verb and must be included in the prefix by using wI-.
