When you set the tempo for a song using the Song Properties dialog, you may either enter a relative tempo (Slow, Medium or Fast), or a numeric tempo from 30 to 280 beats per minute.

If you enter a numeric tempo, the Metronome icon on the song toolbar will turn on or off a metronome feature, which will click off the approximate tempo you have entered, using the PC's system speaker.

The speaker will be played using the root key of the song - for example, if the key is set to A, a 220Hz tone (an A below middle C) will be used for the metronome sound.  
Metronome accuracy is not guaranteed - if your PC is very busy the tempo will be affected. However, this tool should give a fairly accurate idea of the true tempo.
