    Convert the speeds of all of them into similar units. Then you can compare them. 1 furlong is 0.201168km so a falcon travels 537000 x 0.201168 = 108027.216Km in 30 days 30 days=30 x 24 = 720hours. so speed of falcon=distance /time=108027.216/720=150.0378Km/h similarly convert other speeds into Km/h then you can compare the speeds to know who is the fastest. I am in a hurry so i cannot do it for you. Sorry. I hope this helps you If you don't know the unit conversion, you can google it and just type converter after it(for ex. furlong to Km converter)
