Superhuman Speed[1]

Superhuman Speed was a super power that allowed anyone who possessed it to move at speeds that would be impossible for a normal human.

Many metahumans and aliens had such abilities. A person who possessed Superhuman Speed was generally called a speedster, although this term was usually exclusive to individuals who were able to tap into the Speed Force.

In other words, Barry Allen, Clark Kent and Wally West may all have had the ability move beyond human speed, but since Clark Kent wasn't able to tap into the Speed Force, he wouldn't be considered a speedster by that definition.
