Is this free software license? Wording seems a little bit confusing,
when it comes to selling those fonts.
CTAN: fonts/cm/ps-type1/bakoma/LICENSE
 Permission to copy and distribute these fonts for any purpose is

 Permission to modify and distribute modified fonts for any purpose is

 Permission to use these fonts (embedding into PostScript, PDF, SVG
 and printing by using any software) is hereby granted without fee.

I read "Permission ... granted without fee" as indicating that no fee is required for the permission, not that the permission applies only if no fee is involved.

Unless you have some reason to believe otherwise (in which case clarification from upstream should be sought), I'd call this free. IANADD, take with requisite grains of salt.
