These are much taller than a step. There are earth banks at the edge of
each terrace, to keep the water in.

Here are some examples:

There are also flood irrigated rice fields ("paddies") in flatter areas,
where there are just small earth berms between each field section. Usually
there is a slight difference in height, which varies based on the slope.
This can be hard to see from a distance:
