Yes "sdhc" is completely wrong.

Based on our datasheet(also version used on Zynq and ZynqMP) this IP is
compliant with SD HC 3.00, SDIO 3.0, SD MC 3.01 SD MCS 1.01, MMC 4.51.
Not sure about the version which they use.
Also not sure which spec the IP should have to be able to say that we
can use sdhci name. Do you have exact SPEC name?
