Is it ELMAX or ELMAR the right term?

Both are right. Elmax design was the early one. There were only ~1000 cameras produced.
Elmar lens design is the "regular" one, so it is not marked as such on the camera names. So,

http://collectiblend.com/Cameras/Leitz/Leica-I-Mod-A-(4-digits-Number).html
http://collectiblend.com/Cameras/Leitz/Leica-I-Mod-A-(5-digits-Number).html
are all Elmar versions.
