The only answer for more copies of Zelda being sold than units of the Switch is fans are buying gear and games before they buy the Switch.
Breath of the Wild is the fastest-selling Nintendo launch title ever and the fastest-selling Zelda title across its entire 30-year history. Most of the reviews posted for the Nintendo Switch have been positive, though there have been some problems occasionally. This makes the Switch the fastest selling console from Nintendo to date, though these numbers are within a "nontraditional month".
There are a few reasons that the game could've managed to outsell its console-aside from errors in the figures-with Nintendo theorizing that special edition copies were bought to keep in mint condition while second copies were played.

Recently, Nintendo had released a press note saying that the Switch was the fastest seller among the consoles sold by the company. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is launching on April 28th, while ARMS and Splatoon 2 are headed to the console this summer.
As a response to this stronger than expected start, SuperData now projects that the Switch will sell 7.2 million consoles in 2017.
Nintendo has revealed that, according to the NPD Group, the Nintendo Switch has sold more than 906,000 units during its launch month. Breath of the Wild, meanwhile, sold 1.3 million copies across Switch and Wii U in that same window (925,000 units were sold for Nintendo Switch/460,000 units sold for the Wii U). It'll be interesting to see how high Breath of the Wild will chart on that list.
The "Switch Mini" would be created to appeal to children specifically, with the analysts pointing out the existing console's size and weight not being entirely suitable for youngsters. Do you think Nintendo's newest console will be successful as the Wii had been?
