If so equiped the speedometer may have a calibration adjustment, most don't. Are your tires the correct size and profile? A large % of auto manufacturers speedo's are not accurate, 5km is really not that bad, I've seen Audi's and Mitsubishi's 3 times that inaccuracy...

My odometer is showing KMs and the speedometer is showing twice the speed on my 2006 Pontiac G6

There is a setting in the driver information panel for English or Metric units. Change this to English and you will see MPH on Speedometer and Miles on Odometer.

My truck was broken into and I had to replace my instrument cluster now the odometer is 250000 more than it used to be how can I fix that to its original kms

I'm not to sure on your transport laws over where you are but it is illegal to tamper with speedometers unless it is done by a certified speedometer specialist. So if you can verify the correct mileage of the last speedo then find a speedometer specialist to recalibrate it. Then you'll be fine.

Speedometer is 5 mph off.

Most speedometers are off by a few miles per hour even when new, this is normal
but yours could be caused by putting different size tires on the car check the owners manual for correct size tires
