I'd love the ability to convert kilometers to miles on-the-fly on a W|A search page. Does it exist?

just put in something like "100 km to miles"

You can also put in simply "100 km" and it'll give a list of conversions to length units, miles being one of them.

I mean when the result of your query is in kilometers, without having to do another search.

Then add to the end of your query, "In miles". It should convert the result to miles if it can. So you could ask, for example, "How far away is New York in miles", and it will tell you. I am guessing you live outside the US, since my results are in miles to begin with.
