I think the only way a "tsunami bomb" could work is if it triggered an underwater landslide large enough to produce a tsunami.

Baker Test of Operation Crossroads in the Bikini Islands was a 29-kiloton nuke exploded 90' underwater. It produced a 100' wave at 300 meters and 15' waves at 6 km. Such effects would be highly dependent upon the geometry to the harbor and, of course, the dynamics of a large conventional explosion are somewhat different than a small nuclear device.
