You can't be responding to a system generated warning in the way it was responded to because that has resulted in ambiguity. The comment might have been in relation to the warning, or it might have been in response to the co-pilot radar target call. Hence why a system generated warning must always be responded to in an SOP'd formal way, by both pilots.
It's all open to interpretation of course, but on cvr timeline, six mile target was acknowledged with "Rodger" from pilot, next was aural altitude warning followed by pilots comment "small little island "
