Ad-5d-4c-4d-3d is a special kind of "4 to an inside straight flush" because it needs a deuce to make a straight flush, but deuces are wild.

In any other 4-card inside straight flush draw, eight cards would make the straight flush, but like you said only four cards would complete your straight flush.

Edit: In other 4-card inside straight flush draws, it's five (not eight) cards to make a straight flush and 3 cards to make a straight. Thanks Teddys!

You didn't make an error -- your math is correct. The reason the 7-8-9-10 straight flush draw is higher E.V. is because you have more outs for the SF and it's an outside straight flush draw.
--------------------------------------
It's proper strategy to hold four to the SF over the pair in DW. Doesn't matter if that SF would include the deuce.

Edit: I didn't read carefully.

The deuce of diamonds IS the natural draw to the inside straight flush. So there are only 4 outs, and no additional draws to the inside straight (those cards are the other deuces, which are wild and would make it a straight flush).
