I confirm.

Actually, whether an <object> or an <iframe> gets used doesn't make a
difference in terms of scrolling in typical mobile browsers on touchscreens:
they don't allow users to scroll embedded contents. Scrolling only works for
the whole page.

The difference between <object> and <iframe> is that these mobile browsers will
automatically adjust the size of an <iframe> to fit that of the content it
contains. They won't do so with <object> meaning that, no matter what value of
"overflow" you may set, the embedded content is likely to appear truncated on
mobile browsers.

I don't think there is any drawback in using an <iframe> instead of an <object>
to embed content.
