I'm sure I've seen this discussed before. From what I remember some 147's seem to have come to the UK with Km odometers rather than Mls, and it can't be changed except perhaps by changing the speedometer for one that displays miles in the odometer. I know that on mine, the odometer has 'miles' printed underneath it.
The theory seems to be that whilst the total is stored in the ECU in Km, the odometer itself has a chip that provides translation for the miles display. It's probably more complicated, because if the chip goes faulty or there's any attempt to tamper, the result is a permanent '------' display. Google may find more.
