Check if you don't get the same velocity from both numbers. You could ask this question in the main forum, (it is not really cfx-specific), you may get faster and better answers

If you are scaling the geometry and attempting to match the non-dimensional quantities, the Mach and Reynolds numbers will return different values. In that case you'll need to determine which non-dimensional parameter dominates the physics. -CycLone
