I guess I just got an unconstructive answer from you :-D

I am trying to find out whether the benchmarks they used are fair, and
whether the Derby developers know that H2 is "faster".

Even with unfair benchmarks that make H2 really shine, can't Derby
learn from H2??

And no, I don't have an application that I need to choose between Derby or H2.
