The manual tells me that there are two possible clock sources (24 MHz
OSC and APB1), with actually two bits for encoding the mux source,
allowing for two more potential clock sources.
So can we extend this description to provide up to four clocks, with a
clock-names property telling the driver how this maps to the mux value?
Either we use clock names matching the clocks mentioned in the manual:
clocks = <&osc24M>, <&ccu CLK_APB1>;
clock-names = "osc", "apb1";
or we encode the mux values in the clock-names:
clock-names = "mux-0", "mux-1";
Don't know what's more widely used in those cases, the latter seems to
be more future-proof.
Each channel pair can be configured to use one of the two (or four)
clocks, so we can be more flexible with multiple clocks.

Also, can you please add an "interrupts" property here? You don't need
to use it in the driver right now, but since there are multiple
registers dealing with the interrupts we should have it in the binding.
If in need, we can then add support later.

That should match what you wrote above: allwinner,sun8i-r40-pwm.
And I believe this is the right compatible name, since there are
numerous other sun8i SoCs with the sun4i PWM IP, so just sun8i-pwm would
be misleading and confusing.

This should then be amended to what I sketched above.

And then here please add:
interrupts = <GIC_SPI 47 IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH>;
