Good find. But does this mean it's still not exactly like the REAL internet. Is sites like www.ebaumsworld.com gonna work?

This is actually not very good news.....
We've heard all this talk for so long about how it's not the "baby internet" or the "watered down" version, and here we go with the list of limitations, only 10 days away. Yeah, i'm DEFINITELY gonna have to demo this phone before I buy.​

Nothing a software update can't fix. And I would like you to find a website that is bigger than 10mb.

Yeah a 10 MB page is EXTREMELY huge. It would have to have a massive amount of images. I would venture to say that 99.9% of pages that don't have streaming video are smaller than 10MB.

Can somebody explain what the one means?

It means that the total memory size in javascript (like objects/variables/etc) is limited to 10MB, which is pretty large. The 5 seconds means that each javascript execution will be killed if it takes more then 5 seconds.

The one problem that I see, depends how this is implemented.

So in AJAX, you have to fetch some new data from the server. The way that is stated, if that fetch were to take longer then 5 seconds (including whatever needs to be done with the fetch data), which is very easy to do, esp over edge, the process could be killed. I would assume they thought that out a little better than that, but like everything else about the iPhone, we need more info from the horses mouth.
