[General disclaimer: I can never remember what goes where in 
org-agenda-custom-commands, and it's
 all untested. Tread carefully.]
I don't think the "todo" type can do that. You might want to use the "tags" 
type with a search
- see

        (info "(org) Matching tags and properties")

It should be something like

       tags "TODO=TODO|WAITING"

or maybe

       tags "TODO=\"TODO|WAITING\""

or maybe

       tags "TODO=\"TODO\"|TODO=\"WAITING\""

(or maybe something else :-) ).

Maybe (org-agenda-span 'month)?
