"Inner" is good. If you can't recall which is correct, just think
"bellybutton."

In such cases <length> would usually be sufficient for the vertical radius.
Text boxes with radiused corners typically have corner radius relative to
font-size or width of padding. You could still use width percentages by
using only one argument.
