They're trying to compare the speed of "physically on the nonvolatile storage media", rather than the efficacy of the various caching schemes for the particular dummy workload in the test.

After all, writing to disk normally returns much faster than the disk can actually write as it gets cached by the OS in RAM, then spooled out to the actual disk hardware, which caches again and finally writes to the physical media.
