A Windy Day on Mars

Given that the maximum wind speed measured on Mars is approximately 60 miles per hour (mph), find an approximation to the corresponding wind speed on Earth, at standard sea level pressure, which would give rise to the same pressure on a surface perpendicular to the wind direction.

A typical density of air on Mars is 0.0163 times the density of air at standard temperature and pressure at sea level on Earth.
