Dunlendings are considered an Isengard army, so in your case that army wouldn't be a legal target. It is mentioned (in brackets) on pg. 4 of the Twilight of the Third Age rulebook, under Additional Rules of Dunland Faction paragraph.

What about The Fighting Uruk-Hai?
Play if Saruman is in play. Attack a Stronghold with a besieging Army containing Isengard units. The battle lasts for three Combat rounds instead of one. During the first round, the Free Peoples player cannot use Combat Cards unless a Companion is in the battle.
Dunlendings are Isengard units.
Dunlendings are special Shadow (Isengard) Army units and can only be mustered using the “Death to the Forgoil!” ability.
However, I don't think that fighting Uruk-hai could refer to Hillmen.
The Orcs yelled and jeered. 'Come down! Come down!' they cried. 'If you wish to speak to us, come down. Bring down your king! We are the fighting Uruk-hai. We will fetch him from his hole, if he does not come. Bring out your skulking king!'
The Two Towers by J.R.R Tolkien, Book 3, Chapter 7.
Well, since Dunlendings are an Isengard army, if they are a part of an army (or the only units in an army) besieging an FPP stronghold, that army is a legal target for "The Fighting Uruk-Hai". This is only the name of the card, don't let it confuse you. It is only thematic . Any Isengard unit would do, whether the elite or regular, or the Dunlendings.
It is the the same thematic that make me have a doubt about the card Spirit of Mordor :-). I would have understood that Orcs and Hillmen, even both from Isengard, could create confusion or/and casualties in the same army.
