The setups acts here as a keyword to enable the topspace/backspace keys.

The global settings for \framed are changed with the \setupframed command,
the \setupframedtext commands changes the values for \startframedtext.

You have to add \par at the end of each paragraph, e.g. \framed{\definedfont[…]\setupinterlinespace …\par}
