General setup of turbomachinery cases

I am currently trying to run a turbomachinery case with not very much information about. It is an axial fan inside a bis tube and I want to calculate the volume flow at the inlet/outlet and the resulting pressure at the inlet. I also did the MRF setup.
I do have the mesh (geometry), I know the outlet pressure, the rotating speed of the fan, temperature and the data of the fluid (air).
I want to run it incompressible, so I've chosen simpleFoam with turbulence model Standard k-Epsilon.
My settings in the "0" folder are for the U field:
- internalField: (0 0 0)
- at the walls/fan blade: fixedValue (0 0 0)
- at the inlet: pressureInletVelocity
- at the outlet: inletOutlet
for the p field:
- internalField: 0
- at the walls/fan blade: zeroGradient
- at the outlet: fixedValue 0
but what to chose as inlet type and value? Can I also use zeroGradient at the inlet?
for the nut field:
- internalField: 0
- at the walls/fan blade: nutkWallFunction
- at inlet/outlet: calculated
for the k and epsilon fields:
- at the walls/fan blade: kqRWallFunction and epsilonWallFunction
and here again, what to chose as inlet and outlet values/types, since I don't know the flow speed and cannot estimate approximate values of k and epsilon?
For the internalField of k and epsilon I would chose the value 0 since the flow at time 0 is 0 as well.
