What is the meaning of "would + be ~ing"?

I always have thought that "would" means "imaginary past or future".

But, in this conversation. I'm a little bit confused.

M:well, if it ain't Miss Duffy.

W:hello, Finnegan.

M:just a minute, Is this man following, you?

W:If he was, you think I'd be walking this fast?

Especially in this 'would be walking' sentence...

'Would' is coupled with Continuous Tense.

It's hard to guess its meanings.

Because my mother language don't have like this expression...
