{'ap} was defined at qepHom 2020 as:

'ap 		  n. 	dues,  toll

and three more noun phrases based on it were revealed:

HIjmeH 'ap 	  n. 	fee paid when bringing certain commodities into a jurisdiction  
HIjmeH 'ap pIn 	  n. 	customs officer
HuqmeH 'ap 	  n. 	excise tax,  sales tax,  VAT

Which explains Maltz's suggestion about {qavmeH 'ap}.

klingon.wiki entry on {qav} (n) from the page

"Maltz didn't know what qav by itself was, but he said he wouldn't be surprised to learn that qav'ap was shortened from qavmeH 'ap or something like that at some point in the past".
