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.
They basically tested warm air intake. I would like to see hot air intake results. In my personal testing my car has the best fuel economy between 90*-100*F(32*-37*C) without loosing much power.
