I'm guessing they were going for letting people use existing peripherals.

The systems are designed at a “wide range of industrial environments,” and several features hint at transportation applications.

"Rugged" type products don't adopt new technology very quickly and tend to be expensive.

By using USB 3.0 instead of C potential customers can use their already purchased keyboards and what not.

It increases the chance, no matter how small, that a potential customer will buy their product over a competitor.

USB-C uses USB 3.0.

Not really. Especially given that new computer designs pretty much always have USB-C and don't always have USB-A.
