You have to format "(dired-get-marked-files)" and
"(dired-dwim-target-directory)"??==> is it a function ?

But what wrong with "C" in dired ?
Mark your files and hit C ==> the path_where_you_want_to_copy_your_file RET

For copying big files to remote from emacs use sshfs
It's as fast as on your local system.
