I walk 4 miles a day at speed of 4mph. For measuring number of calories needed to maintain weight, would this be lightly, moderately or highly active?

In brief: Moderate

Moderately active- that is good- you are walking a 15 minute mile for about one hour a day.
If you waked faster that might be considered more activity and highly active. The speed as well as the time of an activity contributes to the description you are asking.
