If both quit at the same time, probably the speedo cable. Should be able to order one thru any good car parts store. If not, haffta go to a dealer.

Not often the wiring. The electronic speedometer in your Civic uses the output of the Vehicle Speed Sensor, and in the 1992 the sensor can mostly fail without bringing on the check engine light. However, if you have an automatic transmission it won't work well at all, and the D4 light will flash, if the VSS fails.

Besides the VSS, Honda speedometers often fail. Some adventurous people replace all the electrolytic capacitors in the speedometer cluster and that fixes it but experience with electronic component replacement is very useful for that. Replacing the cluster with one from a wrecking yard is a more common fix.
