Ditto the above. Blame it on European regulations:

In Europe cars must conform the UNECE Regulation No. 39, which requires that the indicated speed is not less than the true speed of the vehicle.

If you want more details...just google UNECE regulation the PDF and take a gander at why your speedometer reads as it does.
