The definition you cited says "the author alludes". Since Ransome, in SD, explicitly states that PD was made up by his characters, and further, on the title page of PD refers to it being "Based on information supplied by the Swallows and Amazons", metafiction it is. I do not consider Ransome to be "other sources" regarding his writings, rather the definitive source.
