I have tried for a few weeks now, but I am having a hard time wiring my brain not to use spaces when using Keypirinha.

Spaces are used by default in Keypirinha to pass arguments to an item. This is a very rare use case for me and, when I need it, I use TAB instead of SPACE.

The rest of the time, I need to remember to search "This File" by typing "thisfile" and avoid to type the spaces.

Could we make this something that users can reconfigure?

Agreed. I was not happy (and still not) with the idea to add a setting just for this but I'll eventually have to face the evidence: it's counter-intuitive in some cases.

In the meantime and in case you're not aware of it, note that if you do need to insert a space character in your search terms, you can do it by hitting either Ctrl+Space or Shift+Space as detailed here (forget about Alt+Space, it's a typo in the docs to be corrected).

It seems people are still having trouble with this one so just to clarify: following the request by the OP here, the space_as_tab setting has been added in v2.5.3 and allows to control whether or not the Space keystroke should be translated to Tab during the initial step of a search (default is yes to stick to previous versions' behavior).
