We know that the Martian atmosphere is about 1% the density of Earth's at sea level. There are references to the wind gusts cleaning off the solar panels on the various rovers. But how strong would a gust of wind on Mars need to be to actually be felt by a human on the surface. If the density is 1%, would a 100kph "wind" on Mars "feel" like a slight breeze to a human on the surface? It might be "moving" at 100KPH, but there is less actual stuff moving, right?
