I tried to run those timings again and the values I got from the terminal are close to the ones I got from the interactive interpreter.
I'm not sure why when I wrote those examples I got such different values.
It would be fine with me to update them and avoid confusion.

Looking at the current code it seems to me that the command-line uses timeit.repeat(), that repeat calls timeit.timeit(), and that timeit.timeit() disables the gc.  Maybe back then it was different; that would explain why I got different results.
