Dunno if we have evidence, but numbers of all sorts are noun-like enough 
that I have no trouble treating them like nouns, even if they're not 
being used in the way that TKD describes using numbers as nouns.

If you want to be certain of correctness, you could of course say 
*qaStaHvIS vatlh DIS poH cha'DIch, vatlh DIS poH wejDIch je.* But I 
wouldn't bother.
