The way I see it, there only seem to be two explanations:
Those, and the obvious one: that Kirk indeed came nowhere near Romulan territory, and the words of his Romulan assailant were insincere. The trio of cruisers was in UFP territory, out on a mission of vengeance to kill Kirk and destroy his ship, and the commander chose to insult Kirk with a pretentious message before blowing him out of the sky.
Though it's interesting that at the end of the episode, Spock is admitting that they are "heading back to the Neutral Zone".

Almost seems as if the Enterprise had been operating in the Neutral Zone and merely stayed clear of actual Romulan territory...
