They tested fot 20-25 and 30 deg C and concluded that 20 deg C was best for BSFC.

Also as rpm increades BSFC decreases. The reason is stated as higher velocities promote better mixing of the fuel.

If i were performing the experiment, i would have decreased the intake air temp untill i saw peak benefit. The range seems narrow... 0 deg C to 100 deg C would have been more satisfying data.
