How do English native speakers usually say the "km" in the following sentence? Is it "K M" or "Kilometer"?
"Bailey lies 56km south-west of the state capital, Denver."
Thanks very much.
"Kilometres" - with the stress on the first or second syllable, depending on where they come from. Athletes, talking about runnable distances, just say "K": "I've done a few 10K runs, but never a half-marathon".
biographical note: the example is entirely fictional
