One question that might be relevent: who defines the terms "good" & "evil" ?

In common usage, "good" tends to be used as a synonym for "humane" or "nice", more specifically for "nice to other people". Similarly, "evil" often means "cruel to other people". These are human standards; there's no particular reason why we should expect a demon to care about or respect people (although we might expect them to be nice to other demons).

From this POV, it makes sense that humans would be predisposed towards good, because "good" is human concept to begin with.
