» Is it vocal folds or vocal chords?

Both terms are right. But the vocal chords are only part of the vocal folds, defining a special tissue covering the inner parts of each vocal fold. If we speak of the “voice” in anatomical terms, i.e. talking about the structures that are involved in tone production itself, it is best to use “vocal folds”.
