I see below that you are using a server package based on an ARM
processor. I thought maybe you were doing your own hardware design and
would therefore be cross-compiling your OS for some sort of stand

Our catalog has between 8 and 9K items and runs about 200MB.

512MB ram might be a little lean. 256MB flash will almost assuredly
not be enough.
The Koha installed from tarball is ~220MB. Then you will have the
additional packages for the dependencies along with the space required
for your db. You will probably have to mount up an additional file

constraints which require an ARM based device.
