I dont see a basis to prefer one over the other.
we already now accept " file foo.c:func "
that might argue for file=foo:func
but file:foo:func is what youd expect reading left-to-right

I think keyword is clear in context. query_term is suitable, but no better.

arg is pretty generic, without overloaded meaning like value ( like
lvalue ? rvalue ?)
almost as old as 'i', but generally a string (not an int)
Is there an alternative you favor ?
