It's a million units sold according to the entry, not a million dollars. Considering that the lowest the game ever sold for (outside of indie bundles, which they are apparently not counting in their figuring) was $5, that would indicate a minimum baseline of $5 million, which makes the (quoted from the blog entry) "10 times as much money as the $360k it cost to make" confusing, even using their accounting for the number sold in the ultra cheap indie bundles. Of course, many of us bought it at $10 or $20...

You're overlooking the money that goes to the publisher/distributors. Assuming they take around 30%, and assuming they averaged $5 per copy, then net profit of around $3.6 million sounds about right.
