The message from curl says it didn't get a single byte downloaded. It would
indicate that the transfer was cut before the server sent anything to curl,
presumably because curl was still uploading its data when the timeout hit.

Isn't that simply because you don't give curl enough time to transfer those
9MB until you kill it for being too slow?
