I'd use indoor=room for an area that is enclosed by a wall, after all 
that is a room.

indoor=wall to me is a free standing barrier within a room.

A pillar? Humm you could model it as a wall.

If the building has multiple levels then using the level=* tag says what 
level the thing is on. A wall could be only on one level, or a few .. 
I'd want to tag that . A pillar could flow from bottom level to top level.

I don't use indoor=level, I do use level=* and level:ref=*.

See https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Simple_Indoor_Tagging

And I'd look at  some tagging examples on level up
