Okay, it is terminology, then. By your proffered definition, there are indeed “Americans” whose presence is unlawful, as evidenced by lack of a current visa or resident alien card. But nothing in that definition would require the large subset of Americans-by-your-definition who are US citizens to obtain those documents—indeed, a citizen /couldn’t/ have those documents in current status. If for some reason citizen status needs to be proved—well, see LION’s list of Real ID evidence requirements. (I’m not, by the way, particularly a fan of the Real ID Act, which is currently creating chaos in California DMV offices.)
