|Quipu, Khipu, or Kipu?

I am working on a page about khipu on my website and it seems that every source I have uses a different name. There's the classic quipu. Gary Urton uses khipu. I've also seen kipu when I was browsing the online archives of the American Museum of Natural History.
So my question is which version will directly cause you to think about the Inca accounting system the second you see it.
What do you think is the best name for a page on this fascinating system, Quipu, Khipu, or Kipu?
If none of the above, what say you?
