        I'm pretty sure it's spelled out *somewhere* - I remember
we used to play that he moved 30cm, then one day I was reading
through the rules trying to figure out how to beat them pesky
eldar & I came across that little tidbit of information (along
with the fact previously unknown to me and my opponent that anyone
shooting at the Avatar is at -1 to hit and in close combat is
-1 CAF).

        I think what I might be thinking of is that the Avatar
is not a command unit, but does not get orders, either. Thus,
he doesn't get the move-at-charge-rate ability. I could be wrong
about that, though, I'll have to check Renegades tonight.

Who just realized the Avatar works exactly like a 'nid
  on 'Hunt' instincts...
