We're matching packets sent _to_ the SFTP server here (upload).
If you want to limit download speed you have to use 'sport 22'
instead of 'dport 22'.
If you intend to limit upload on the interface, try using 'ingress'
instead of 'root' to you catch traffic coming the other way. I don't know
whether you can use HTB with that though. If you're doing this on a router,
try using one of the output interfaces instead.
(Again, this is guesswork based on my very limited understanding of TC...)
