Except TKD explicitly says this is a noun phrase, *ja'chuqmeH rojHom:*

    The phrase *ja’chuqmeH rojHom* /a truce (in order) to confer/ is the
    object of the verb *neH* /he/she wants it/

    The object is a noun *rojHom* /truce/ preceded by the purpose clause
    *ja’chuqmeH* /for the purpose of conferring/ or /in order to confer./

So the TKD example is exactly what you were asking about.
