Default Core Rule Book and BL Space Combat Velocity

Hello everyone,

I am checking to ensure that I am not out to lunch in my conversion from hours to seconds and kilometers to meters

TNE Core Rule Book page 312 defines Velocity as The speed of a vessel or missile expressed in range bands per combat turn. For reference purposes, a velocity of 1 is equal to a speed of 60,000 kilometers per hour.

Brilliant Lances Rules of Play page 3 define Velocity as The speed of a vessel or missile expressed in hexes per game turn. For reference purposes, a velocity of 1 hex per turn is equal to a speed of 60,000 kilometers per hour.

60,000 km per hour = 60,000 km per 3,600 seconds

A vessel or missile has (rounding to 4 decimal places) a velocity of 16.6667 km per second or (rounding to 2 decimal places) 16,666.67 m per second.

Am I on the right track?

If not can someone please get me on the right track?
