Pecunia has provided detailed information on walker speeds.
While trying to convert the walker speed values from EmperorFiguresModels.txt for every walker in the city I came across something odd. Most walkers have speed '8', which seems to be the 'international standard speed' in Emperor (equivalent to 54.4 tiles/month = standard speed in every Impressions citybuilder to date). So has the diviner, according to the file. However, I noticed in the game that a diviner is slower than the rest of the walkers in my housing block, such as guards, inspectors and water carriers. I will post the table here, but I cannot guarantee all numbers are right, since the data seems to be hardcoded in the game, and not in separate models.
Speed conversion table:
Following table with the speed of all walkers is taken directly from the models, please don't fully trust it, as I said, at least the religious walkers are listed wrong.
