I think, he told 'it goes any number of squares horizontally or vertically, but must always jump exactly one piece whether it captures or not' just because he was comparing it with Korean cannon (as contrary to Chinese cannon), and did not mean that it actually do captures. But there still is one uncertain thing (see my previous comment). It's interesting that bishop in Shatar, Mongolian-Buryat chess (it's rules are pretty close to modern European chess), is also called camel!
