Sigh.  No.  Look at what you're doing - look carefully at the above.

"CPU implementer" - 0x41.  That's A.  For ARM Ltd.  ARM Ltd implemented
this CPU.  Did ARM Ltd really implement OMAP4470 ?  I think TI would be
very upset if that were to be the case.

So no, OMAP4470 is _NOT_ a CPU.  It is a SoC.  The CPU inside the SoC is
a collection of ARM Ltd Cortex A9 _CPUs_.

See?  Please, learn what a CPU is as opposed to a SoC.
