The ArtScroll Onkelos on that pasuk refers us to Ramban on pasuk 9:11. The
last lines of that Ramban cite this Onkelos, and he writes that Cham told
it to his brothers "bifnay rabim l'hal'ig alav - in public to make fun of

So perhaps RMB's question might be better phrased, "Who do Unqelus and
Ramban believe were conducting business there?"
