If you only wanted numbers and accidentals, you could have used the
support for figured bass (see the reference manual). However, for
your needs, I would recommend to typeset them using ordinary text markup, which also is well described in the manual. The disadvantage
is that the different chord indications will not be aligned vertically.
If you want them vertically aligned, you could typeset as a lyrics line.
But then you would have to say something like V$_7$ to get the subscripts,

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I've been scouring the Lilypond
documentation and the mailing lists and I can't find an answer to this
question.  How do I print chords as roman numerals e.g. I, V_7, I_6_4
(where the _ means "subscript")?  I want to do this in a piano score, with
the chords appearing below the staves.  I'm willing to enter the chord
numerals explicitly; I don't expect lilypond to deduce them for me ;-)
