    Usually km but I have been to gyms where it is measured in miles.

    I always find it harder to run on a treadmill than outside. I can run at about 9-10 mph outdoors on roads but on the treadmill, i struggle to get up to anywhere near this speed, so I am a little dubious about how treadmills speeds/distances equate to "real" running

    The one is use is in miles but can be switched to km...I suppose that it really depends on the manufacturer.

    They can usually be changed. Mine is in MPH when initially turned on but i can change by holding the speed button.

    Mine are all in Km (about three different manufacturers' machines!)

    As an aside, just remember that 1.6km is roughly a mile.... the mental arithmetic needed to work everything out could help control the boredom of running on a treadmill

    You're not covering any distance, you're just moving your legs.

    You don't run on a treadmill, you move your legs, the treadmill does the hard work.
