The confusion arises owing to reading english commentaries.
आकाशो नाम शब्दगुणः अवकाशकरो मूर्तद्रव्याणाम् -
Akasha is that which has 'sound' as attribute and
makes way for things having a form.
अवकाशः - to make space
You are getting confused with terminologies आकाशः and आकाशः .
Also, you are going in a single direction without even thinking of alternate
meanings of आकाशः as per the sampradAya.
आ (समन्तात्) काशते (प्रकाशते) इति आकाशः and hence, आत्मा is compared with आकाशः
My 2 cents...
