Default Water Turbine (Fan type) - fluid speed/rotation balance

Johndm is on a distinguished road
I have set up a water (fan type) turbine in a body of flowing water (a pipeline).
I have set up the water flow rate at 10m/s and the turbine rotation at 60rpm.
The study converged quickly but I'm not sure the rotation speed matches what would occur at 10 m/s flow.
How do I check if there is imbalance between the input (flow rate) and the output (fan rotation)?
Also, once balance is obtained, how do I get a value of the turbine torque generated?
Please see ansys workbench file attached here:
