I don't claim to be able to do the math, but one could probably easily  
calculate it from the Fourier frequencies by looking at the attenuation by  
frequency over a 1km lengh:
Loss per 100m over frequency:
10M    100M    400M    1300M    2300M
7dB    14dB    28dB       49dB    72dB
So looking at these numbers I am guesstimating a risetime in the us  
alongside a good handful of microseconds of propagation delay.

RG-142 is far from low-loss.  Does anybody use it at that  length?

What's the rise time at the end of 1 km with a 1 ns rise time  at the input?

These are my opinions.  I hate  spam.
