I think there is incidental support for the inhumi on Urth, but I also think that Wolfe shoehorned it in after the fact. Near the end of Claw, Jolenta is bitten by something (a blood bat?) and the bleeding won't stop. Immediately after, they meet the Cumaen and Merryn in the ruined town of Apu Punchau. This doesn't have any relevance by itself, but in Return to the Whorl, Silkhorn and Jahlee (and whoever else) encounter Merryn on Urth and Jahlee seems to intimate that Merryn is an inhuma (at least that's one way to interpret it).
