       For low precision like your proposed app, there is already an app that uses wind noise on the microphone to estimate the wind speed. Just google cell phone anemometer. They say it's good enough for low precision stuff like kite surfing.

       If you need greater precision than the turbulence- roar, you could use one of those tiny turbine- whistles and have your cell phone listen to that. The frequency should relate to speed fairly well.
