Bearing in mind that Hashem made the inheritance of the seven nations contingent upon Yisrael keeping Torah and Mitzvos (See Devarimn 4:1 and Devarim 27:3 - Ramban), why does the Torah see fit to write it here, in connection with the Keini, Kenizi and Kadmoni?

1.

Ramban: Based on the fore-knowledge that Yisrael were worthy of inheriting the land of the seven nations, the Torah is speaking here after Hashem had already decided to give it to Yisrael 1 through Moshe and Yehoshua. But to inherit the remaining three nations would require all of Yisrael to love Hashem and to go in His ways. 2

What exactly, dos "Kol ha'Yamim" mean?
