I think the "small room" they are talking about is more like a closet or pantry.

You did not mention what kind of air movement you have and if it closes off if the vent fan is turned off.

These kilns are pretty close to a kitchen oven on self cleaning what with all the insulation the fire brick provides.

As long as you have a good 18 inches of space behind and to the sides you should be fine with that kiln.
Just keep you vent open ( not necessarily running ) and your make up air coming in while the kiln is running.
With my experience as a safety trainer in the Navy for 12 years out of my 17 years active duty I think you should be fine.

Read all you can stand in the safety and studio building / bragging threads and you will see a lot of the details spelled out for you.

Good luck and welcome to the addiction.

ETA: Oh and be sure to put it up on 2 or 3 inches of some kind of fire proof stand.
I think they come with 3 fire bricks to use to get good air flow under them.
