There are 10^6 mm in 1 km and 3600 x 1000 ms in 1 hr, so
419 mm/900 ms x 1km/10^6 mm x 3.6x10^6 ms/h =
1.676 km/h.

Yes, but you will have to invert the two conversion factors above so the unwanted units cancel out.

In general, compound conversions are easily handled by cascading the two separate conversions, km to mm, and hour to second, in a "chain rule" and multiplying out.

What is 1km/h to m/s or 1m/s to km/h

1 m/s x 3600 s/1 h x 1 km/1000 m = 3.6 km/h

Re: converting mm/ms to km/h

Hi,
My problem is reverse : how do I get 320 km/h to mm/ms ?

I have ESBUnitConv, but they do not list milliseconds.

Thanks a lot.

Convert to meters per second; recognize that mm/ms is the same numeric value because the two milli- prefixes cancel out.

Recognize that an hour is 3.6 ks (3600 s)
320 km/h x 1 h/3.6 ks = 88.9 m/s = 88.9 mm/ms

You get an endless repeating decimal, but you have to ask what is the practical accuracy of the 320 km/h datapoint and decide where to cut it off to avoid "decimal dust."
