The hostname doesn't need to match any public name. It should just be
unique for the local network. I usually leave it set to "freedombox".

The domain name should be a public facing name. For example, I have one
box using "jvalleroy.mooo.com". I also have Dynamic DNS configured to
keep the domain pointing to my public IP.

But I don't think these are relevant for Tor relays. Have you set up
port forwarding in the router configuration? It should include the ports
listed for your Tor relay.
