When you unscrew the arbor nut it is turning in the same direction that the blade would turn when cutting. Otherwise it would come loose in use.

A miter saw or chop saw should have the closest teeth (to the operator) in the down direction.

Ignore the label (are all blades labeled on the same side?). The teeth cut down into the board so that the board is pushed against the fence.
