How Ratio of speeds equals ratio of distances traveled?

It is not. Suppose I cycle at 20 km per hour and a car travels at 50 km per hour. So the ratio of the speeds is 20/50 or 2/5. In 4 hours I will travel 80 km while in half an hour the car will travel 25 km. The ratio of the distances is, therefore, 80/25 = 16/5 which is NOT 2/5.

Sam rides his moped for 2 hours at a speed of 15 miles per hour so how many hours will it take Matt to cover the same distance at a speed of 5 miles per hour and how do you make this a 2 part ratio?

In 2 hours, Sam will travel 30 miles. At 5 miles per hour, it will take Matt 6 hours to travel the same distance. Matt's time equals the ratio of Sam's speed to his own multiplied by Sam's travel time. In this case. the ratio is 3, so the travel time would be 6 hours.
