good you found something that works for you, esp such a simple solution.

Interestingly, I had to remove the "/tmp" argument, otherwise it threw
an error.  This worked for me on Emacs 27.2:

   (setq url 
   (url-retrieve url #'eww-download-callback (list url))

It downloads the file in the background.

I wonder, if there is a way to somehow list the running downloads or at
least see the open network buffers?  I do not see them in *Buffer List*
and when downloading with eww, the downloads feel invisible.
