Okay, I tested this using human knights and using gear with the worst possible speed modifications (Extra Heavy Chain, Battle Mules, War Spears).  Commander has forced march level 10.  A standard division speed was reduced from 18 to 10.8 wearing the gear.  As an elite division however the speed was reduced from 18 to -5.4.  

If you attempt to move the army, you get an Unable to Complete Request box with the following:

This army cannot move as it has a negative move speed, you cannot attack with it, but can defend with it.

So the way the formula is applied is a little wonked where elite divisions are concerned.  The whole point of using percentages is to avoid this sort of problem.

Nope.  Could cause some problems though if one sent a standard division army to occupy a square and it was attacked and the divisions became elite.  Not sure what would happen should that happen when their occupation time is up and they are due to return home, but have no movement.

Is there any way to push them to 88 mph? You will also need 1.21 gigawatts of power and a flux capacitor.

I think it would be funny to feint someone with a speed 1 army from 1000 squares away.
