For the 64M thing, maybe a difference in qemu versions?
I'm using debian bullseye (11) and my qemu version is:
$ qemu-system-arm  --version
QEMU emulator version 5.2.0 (Debian 1:5.2+dfsg-10)

About the timeout, I bet it was due to the work load, because I can't
reproduce it today, when the activity on my machine is low.
That said, the execution times range between 13s to 16s which makes me
say that the orinigal 20s limit was maybe too optimistic.
Maybe 60 seconds is not strictly required, but at least something like
40s would be safer.
