At the latest qep'a', {mIS} and its variations were confirmed to refer to
mental confusion. If by "great confusion in the street" you mean to
emphasize that nobody knows what's going on, then {mIS} sounds like it
would work. ("Much Ado About Nothing" was once translated as {paghmo' tIn
mIS}, literally "the confusion is great because of nothing", although this
wasn't done by Okrand and was also done before the latest qep'a'.)

It is probably not usable in the sense of "mixing up one thing with
another". For that, you could perhaps try a phrase with {ngu'Ha'}
"misidentify" or the like.
