I think that there is a miss-conception here. If you want to talk about the wall the retains the earth, this is the dyke. The embankment is more then a wall and is at least as large as the road and made of resistant material.  The wiki pages https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:embankment and https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:man_made%3Dembankment do not accept usage of polygones with these tags.

 You should have read "right side of way" : it's the side on your right when you follow the way in its direction.

What does this mean ? “should be tagged on a way drawn with the lower side on right side of way direction”

The downhill side of the embankment is to the right of the way.
