The AL_VELOCITY property defines the actual velocity of the listener, and each sound source separately, not the speed of sound.

For example, if a bird moves according to some velocity vector, use that vector to update the AL_VELOCITY property in the bird's OpenAL source. The same applies for the listener, which could correspond to the camera location. Therefore, if the camera move at some speed, use that velocity vector to update the listener AL_VELOCITY.
