Sound is a vibration, a wave that travels through an elastic medium. The speed of sound describes how far such a wave is at a given amount

In dry air at 21°C (70°F) the speed of sound is 344 m/s (1230 km/h, or 770 miles, or 1130 ft/s). Although it is often used to refer specifically to air, the speed of sound can be measured in almost any substance. The speed of sound in liquids and non-porous solids is much higher than in air.

The most important factor affecting the speed of sound in Earth's atmosphere is temperature
