But he is not interpreting either “commercial” or GPL.

What he says is: here's the code for free (gratis, no price) under the 
GPL, but if you don't like it, I also offer it commercially (under an 
undisclosed license, maybe a custom one as required by the client).

He is NOT offering the GPL version commercially, even if that's allowed 
by the GPL. 

For ex. You are free to do it, it's that he is not doing it (or just not 
advertising it - I'm sure he wouldn't mind someone paying for the GPL 
version either).
