It is necessary to check if this prot_type(tunnel type) is valid here in case applications don't do that.

It is used in both rte_ethdev.h file and rte_eth_ctrl.h file.  
In rte_eth_ctrl.h file, it is used in rte_eth_tunnel_filter_conf structure.
+struct rte_eth_tunnel_filter_conf {
+	...
+	enum rte_eth_tunnel_type tunnel_type; /**< Tunnel Type. */
+	...
+};

I will put the rte_eth_tunnel_type definition in the rte_eth_ctrl.h file at the beginning of definition.

ok

I will add more comment for it.
> But I doubt we should configure a tunnel type for a whole port.
Yes, your understanding is correct. It is for a whole port/PF, that's why we should add 
tunnel_type in  rte_eth_conf structure.
