We know the daily meeting and the backlog refinement is inevitable to have out from in the sprint timebox, but we don't know, for example in a two-week sprint, if the sprint planning, review and retrospective are included too.

So, in a two-week sprint, are include all ceremonies or just a few of them?

From the Scrum Guide:

Sprints contain and consist of the Sprint Planning, Daily Scrums, the development work, the Sprint Review, and the Sprint Retrospective.

All of the ceremonies are included in your Sprint timebox.

The answer from Thomas Owens is correct. However, I would like to add that depending on the team organization, I think it's acceptable to do some of the ceremonies outside of the sprint.
