These are 2 different things. Keywords are a subversion feature and
they are per-file. Unfortunately they're not well documented in the
TSVN 1.4.x release, so you will have to look in the subversion docs to
find out more. Useful for individual files.

SubWCRev is used to scan a working copy and pick out the highest
last-committed revision from all files - useful for a software build
reference, not useful for individual documents. This should be fully
documented in the help file, or online here:
