Given the form of {vatlh DIS poH}, which as far as I know has only
been used without a specifying number (compare {tera' vatlh DIS poH
cha'maH wej} "the 23rd century", literally "Earth's century number
23", from S15), I would rather lean towards {maH DIS poH} for
"decade".

>{SanID DIS poH} for "millennium", etc.

This (or very close to it) is actually canon, so we don't even have
to presume. {SaD DIS poH} "millennium", along with {netlh DIS poH}
"myriad, period of 10,000 years", is given by Okrand in "matlh juppu'
mu'mey" (HQv8n3).
