Accuracy of Zwift power/speed

So I have this trainer, Elite Qubo Power Smart B+ Trainer, and have been using Zwift with it. I don't have an actual power meter, but it's coming. Just curious about the speed and power measurements that I see on Zwift. When going up the hills on Zwift it usually shows something like 4-5mph, but when doing something very similar on the road it would be more like 9-10mph. Hell it'll show 3mph once in a while which makes me laugh a little.

The same goes for power, since it's an estimated power curve that Zwift calculates for my specific trainer.

Just curious if others have noticed similar and wondering about it.

Thanks in advance.
