Going to the USA for 5 days, and will be using my Koodo plan to text (but not phone or data). I won't likely send more than 50 texts while there. On the following link it says that if you don't want to add a roaming addon, it will cost $5 for 100 txts. Does anyone know that means $5 per day, or $5 for the duration spent outside of Canada?

5$ per 100 sent while outside of Canada

Edit for example, I send 235 text while I'm in Miami on my private yacht while I party with Pitbull and Ne-yo (regardless of how many days in there). Koodo charges me 5$ for the first 100 then again at text 200. So when I get back, Koodo will have charged me 10$

Exactly! :) It's $10 for 200 outgoing messages since you are charged $5/100 SMS while roaming in the US. However, if we're talking about 235 SMS, it will cost $15.
