Why shouldn't it be?

Possibly - but without more detail, who can say? If your smoothwall box
has dhcp on eth0, and is getting an IP from your provider, then boxes
on your green lan should be able to get internet access using the green
IP of the smoothwall box (18.104.22.168 in your situation, 10.10.10.254
in the example you gave).
