i don't understand these risks, the list of risks are causes of "low quuality of schedule" or "schedule not according with the WBS / Project".

I'd add one about "expectation that all tasks will take average duration" - especially in technical woirk there is an understanding of how long a task will typically take if it all goes well, but not an understanding that a difficulty doesn't just extend this by a little, but can easily be a block that extends many times the duration, far beyond normal contingencies.
