Yes this is confusing.
Currently unmatched values get converted to -1 when passed to cfsetospeed().
To determine if the setting is actually support you must read back:

On my linux system here B250000 is not supported for example:

$ stty speed
$ stty ospeed 250000
$ stty speed

POSIX is quite vague about acceptable inputs to:

The Linux man pages specify certain B... constants must be specified:

If you use one of those constants you get different results than above

$ stty ospeed 230400
stty: 'standard input': unable to perform all requested operations
$ stty speed

As for relaxing to specify arbitrary numbers, that wouldn't work
on Linux at least as there isn't a direct mapping between B... and value:

$ find /usr/include/ -type f | xargs grep -F B230400
/usr/include/bits/termios.h:#define  B230400  0010003

Perhaps low level serial control like this is best supported
with the setserial command on Linux at least.
