Within the kernel, we have a lot of internal terminology. If you grep through the kernel source code, you'll find that in both the documentation and the code, we do use the term "hugepage". We also use "huge page", but "hugepage" is more common. Therefore I wouldn't call it a spelling error, just an internal term :)
