See (info "(elisp) Prefix Command Arguments").

One has to look at the interactive spec of the defun in the source to
see whether a numeric or raw prefix arg is used and expected in the
body.

When `org-clock-in' had used (interactive "p") instead, your version

    (org-clock-in 4)

would have worked.  But the function wants to treat a C-u prefix
specially, so it uses "P".
