You have two possibilities:

1) Ask latex to hardly try to let the tables where they are:

dblatex -Ptable.default.position=[H] file.xml

2) Do not use the float mechanism:

dblatex -Ptable.in.float=0 file.xml

I would recommend 1) for your specific case. 2) is mainly for tables that  
should be splitted over several pages.

Both options work for your case. For further discussions, you should  
switch to the dblatex mailing list.
