You tell us? What have you heard them use the term for?
I've sometimes seen the term used, sloppily, to refer to various aspects of the upper layers of an engine but not necessarily just by Americans.
Of course, few of us should really use the term these days given the prevalence of overhead cams (and therefore absence of rockers), instead using the term valve cover.

I believe that is the case ('sills', after talking to my wrench mate
in the States).
But then they call bumpers > fenders, wings > quarter panels, bonnets

A bing Image search for "American car rocker cover" brings up this selection
so yes it looks like cills is the most likely
No it doesn't, Those are just images of 'american cars'
I watch lots of US reality TV car shows and a rocker cover is the same
there as here.
Only wings are fenders and boots are trunks and bonnets are hoods.
And transmissions are two speed powerglide!
