One easy way to know what references to use, is to create a project using the Telerik Project Wizard
. It will create a full Xamarin Forms solution for each platform with all of the required renderers, references and all the Init calls.
This last part is what the UWP app was missing, you missed the last step
in the Getting Started Section "Register ListView Renderer":
In your UWP app's MainPage.xaml.cs
you need to declare the renderer as well as call TelerikForms.Init().
I've reattached your demo (please read my "attached demo" paragraph below before running it), for your convenience here's a screenshot of the fix:

When using the control, you need to declare it's renderer as well as the Init method. This is true for each platform. You'll find the instructions for each under the Getting Started section just like you did for RadListView.
I strongly recommend doing at least one File > New > Project > TelerikXFApp
and keep it around as a reference project. You'll always be able to go back to it in case you need to know what needs to be added.
The attached demo is only a few KB because I removed the bin/obj folders as well as replaced the DLLs you put into the Portable project for the ones that are installed on your machine at the default location. You should only reference them from here: C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\UI for Xamarin R1 2017\Binaries
Once you open the demo, do a Rebuild > Solution
to restore the packages and you can deploy it. This is what you should see:
I hope I was able to help get you up and running. If not, please feel free to open a Support Ticket now that you have a license and either I or one of my colleague from the Xamarin engineering team will investigate further.
When zipping up projects, if you delete removed projects as well as the Packages, bin and obj folders
from existing projects, the zip size will drop from 28 MB to just a few KB. The reason for this is that you're no longer redistributing all the DLLs (including any paid versions) as well as the compiled version of each project until you delete those folders.
