This is only a guess . . . have you checked the rear hatch latch mechanism . . . mine got very slightly loose . . . that latch can be tightened . . . after that the clicking sound I used to hear intermittently disappeared.

My clicking sound was not speed-dependent . . . but I have had cars that did that . . . at a specific rpm, the noise would appear . . . if I increased (or decreased) the rpm (not necessarily speed), the noise would disappear.
