Manapoints and spellpoints are usual ways to write those things. It is a name of the concept.
Point of mana is one manapoint. How much mana, or how many manapoints.

Spellpoint I think is a bit less clear naming because "point of spell" doesn't really make any sense. Neither does spell point, unless there is some point of space/time to make/cast/use a spell.
