I think you're going to need to buy more RAM.  1Gb of RAM means there
is a maximum of 2Mb available per Postgres process before you start
to go into swap hell --- in practice a lot less, since you have to allow
for other things like the kernel and other applications.

AFAIR TPC-C doesn't involve any complex queries, so it's possible you
could run it with only 1Mb of workspace per process, but not when
you've configured

That's ten times more than your configuration can possibly support.
(I don't recall whether TPC-C uses any queries that would sort, so
it's possible this setting isn't affecting you; but if you are doing
any sorts then it's killing you.)

Bottom line is you probably need more RAM.
