Excellent questions. Thank you for bringing these up.
In the first example you describe, only "0.1 mile" should be in Nemeth switch indicators; "per" and "hour" are just words and so should be transcribed in UEB. We would treat "0.5 hour per day" the same way--with only "0.5 hour" within Nemeth switch indicators.
In the second example you describe, really only "56.23 seconds" must be in Nemeth mode. No part of "41 minutes" is technical/mathematical material. Since we do not want to overextend the Nemeth mode, I would say it needs to be restricted to the decimal and its related unit of measure.
The forum did not allow the scan of your example page to upload, because the file was too large, so my response is based only on the, quite well written, text of your question.
Thank you again for laying these examples on the table; you are really helping us interpret and clarify the Guidance.
