It will be more like Maternal Aunt in-law --> Aunt in-law goes for relation from in-law side .

I hope that i solved your problem. I posted as anonymous as i forget my user name/ password.

Any alternative or better "word".. do let me know
I'm sorry, but that's not how it would be used in the US. I've never heard the phrase "aunt-in-law" at all, but if I did, it would be applied to your spouse's aunt, not the woman who married your uncle.

Your in-laws, of any flavor, are related to you beause of your marriage, not theirs.
