I think, it's a confirmation that DD is a Tenryubito(sp). The dwarves are, I believe, simply saying that their problem with is kind started already in the void century, and as continued since.
Well, might even be that DD is over 900years old. Not that anything like that has occured in the world of OP as of now, but remember that Vergo also said "You don't know about Jokers past". If he is a Tenryubito, it would still be his present as well then, wouldn't it?
It is interesting that Robin is the one who is being told that. The one person in the Straw Hat crew who would be interested in that stuff. The Dwarves' history with DD is another piece to the true history Robin is searching for
not tryin to say that Dd is 900 years old more like trying to point out that these dwarves are connected to the void history and most likely we may learn something of it finally. piece by piece.
The implications of this is very interesting. The Tontatta Tribe may have been part of the ancient kingdom, and may have preserved some of their ancient history. Doflamingo's connection to the Tenryuubito is also intriguing. Law implied he was Tenryuubito, but I wonder if that is all their is to it. He obviously does not look like the lumpy, inbred looking Tenryuubito we so far have seen. I also think it is strange that a Tenryuubito would not only become a pirate and arms dealer, but join the Shichibukai. What benefit would membership confer to a Tenryuubito? They are already, basically, above the law. Touching a Tenryuubito is enough for an Admiral to be deployed. If he is Tenryuubito, what did Dofla gain by joining the Shichibukai, other than some minor amusement?
DD said that his roots are deeper than a Tenryuubito's. Tenryuubitos are descendants of the 20 Kings. So, unless Donquixotes were royal somehow, I don't think DD is a tenryuubioto.
But... if he is called "young master" at the age of 41, there must be a "senior master" alive. And so far, the only one who ressembles DD is the blond old man from Gorosei.
I don't know why, but I think that "Jack", mentioned by a broker, is related to DD. We know that DD has a ranking based on cards. Joker and Jack are cards too, and who knows if there's a Queen and a King as well.
Anyway, I believe that not all the members of the Donquixote Family are at Dressrosa. Maybe only DD's branch.
And DD's is super strong... wonder why he didn't annihilated all the dwarfs yet.
Dofla did not say "his roots are deeper" than the Tenryuubito, he said "it's a deeper story than that", as in it is a more complicated story. He wields Tenryuubito like influence over world affairs, as demonstrated by his ability to manipulate the entire world just to trick the Strawhats. Like Law said, only a Tenryuubito could do something like that. Dofla obviously does not fit what we have so far seen of the Tenryuubito, so the story (as Dofla said) must be "deeper than 'that". Law's line (also in the above link) "Someone with the power to do something that outrageous...!! Only the likes of the Celestial Dragons could manage that!! You. Could you be..." only makes sense if Dofla is Tenryuubito, or someone above the Tenryuubito. He might be a Tenryuubito, but not just any Tenryuubito. Maybe not all Tenryuubito are equal. The fight between the Tontatta Tribe and Donquixote Family began 900 years ago, the beginning of the Void Century. I am willing to think that the Donquixote Family produced one of the twenty kings, and that Dofla is their direct descendent, and heir.

900 year history with Donquixote family on Dressrossa and the Dwarves on Green Bit - 100 year Void Century = 800 years since 19/20 kings involved in taking over the world and moving to Mariejoas. The fact that the noble kingdom of Alabasta refused to go to Mariejoas means they probably are the only family that regret the incident during the Void Century. Obviously the nobles committed an atrocity, and would lead their hold of power in question if the truth is discovered.
My theory now is that there was one family (maybe not related by blood) that were the true recognized nobles. They did not rule the world, but were in harmony with nature itself. They had crafted amazing artifacts to explore the world across any sea (Pluton) and explore the sky and beyond to the moon istelf (Uranus) and a special member could call Sea Kings to guide to the depths of the ocean. They were explorers discovering all the secrets of the world with no fear from nature as they posed no threat to nature. They were attacked pre-emptively by a paranoid 20 kindgoms who worried that these great ships would rule this world and control all the mythical beasts of the world. Their kingdom was destroyed while all voyages were under way, and with nothing to return to, set to hide throughout the world. Posideon's party eventually acclimated to life under water, Pluton hid in Alabasta their crew spread throughout the world, Uranus landed on the Moon and adjusted to be able to live in the sky and beyond. Each scattered group wrote chapters in the story of their banished culture. The last will and testament of "D". The new World Govt realizing that Alabasta hid the people, that they salted they poisoned the ground turning it into a harsh desert. The Royal family vowing to save their land and live through their betryal, became an outsider with no more influence.
