Speed is a measurement, according to "people", and it measures how fast something goes.
To make it simpler, people who go fast are considered speedy, and people who don't, well, then they don't go fast.
Speed was used as a word back when the Romans decided that they needed a name for "how fast something goes" and so speed was used because everytime someone would go "ssssssssssssss" to someone who had to pee, they would pee, and since the past tense of the word is peed, then they added "s" to "peed" and called it speed.
