Part of a speaker description reads "INPUT POWER 70 watts nominal, 140 watts music power".

Is this speaker actually 70W with 140W DYNAMIC Power? OR is it really a 140W speaker?

Perhaps it means the speaker doesn't like but can handle power over 70 watts.. though this seems an interesting number.

140 watts is only 3db higher in volume then 70 watts. More importantly is the efficency and if the speakers are 4, 6 or 8 ohm normal impedence.

What type/ model are these speakers?

There is one glaring error with those speakers, as I have owned the previous generation of them (I got them for $18/pr!! brand new a long time ago) - they are identical, ie; the tweeter is in the same location for both left and right, on the right side of the speaker. Not ideal for imaging.

If you are considering these, I would skip them. Enclosures are very thin, drivers are not very good and the crossovers are sad at best.

to answer the question, they can handle 140w PEAK, not continuously. 70w being their recommended continuous power.
