Bravo for them!  If only they called it Libre SIMH...

When I visit that URL I see two files created initially in that commit.
It is not explicitly clear which text is the "disputed licensing clause".
Does that consist of the text starting with line 32 in LICENSE.txt?

Anyway it is quite clear that that text makes the license nonfree.

Can you tell me how to contact the develoers of Open SIMH?
