Yes, it's your router's internal IP address, not the public one.

No, it's not your router's public IP address. You must use a free IP address of your local network (from the same subnet where your router's local IP is from).

You can buy a domain or use a domain from dyndns.org, or you can even make up a hostname (but make sure you add it to /etc/hosts so that the system can resolve it locally).
