From the datasheet:

6.4 Pins used as GPIOs

LEDn pins not used to control LEDs can be used as General Purpose I/Os (GPIOs).

To use as input, set LEDn to high-impendance (00) and then read the pin state
via the INPUT0 or INPUT1 register.

For use as output, connect external pull-up resistor to the pin and size it
according to the DC recommended operating characteristics. LEDn output is HIGH
when the output is programmed as high-impedance, and LOW when programmed LOW
through the 'LED selector' register. The output can be pulse-width controlled
when PWM0 or PWM1 are used.

So, you should provide both a direction_input and direction_output.
