Another option is setting the Google API Keys in the environment [1].

So, it should be enough to create a file at /etc/chromium.d that
exports the keys. (/usr/bin/chromium sources all files on that dir)

This works for me:

$ cat /etc/chromium.d/googleapikeys 
export GOOGLE_API_KEY="AIzaSyCkfPOPZXDKNn8hhgu3JrA62wIgC93d44k"
export GOOGLE_DEFAULT_CLIENT_ID="811574891467.apps.googleusercontent.com"

(BTW: This keys are the Debian Google API keys that used to be included 
in older Chromium packaging debian/rules)
