You should find that the seek buttons are adjusting the X axis, and the
wheel the Y axis. I looked at the keymap and it seemed reasonable to me.
Maybe the quickscreen is wrong?

How about having a list with 1 OR 3 entries - i.e. rate (always displayed),
pitch and speed (only displayed when timestretch is enabled)? That way I
can leave timestetch enabled all the time, but only use it when I explicitly
want to (with no need to stop the music). Of course, the setting values
would still interact, but this could work as long as the lists offer a high
enough resolution (0.1% for rate, say).

Pitch and rate would need to handle semitones too (I'm not sure how).
Speed and rate would need to support nudge (maybe some kind of
shifted-left/right or up/down?).

Maybe we need both UIs - or maybe one for button targets and one for wheel
targets? (I don't like that idea much, but I like it a lot more than losing
the up/down/left/right pitch screen.)
