"So, it is more like 70-ish."

Actually about 66.6%. Close enough. Should work OK.

If you want to bring it down to the optimum 63% you could consider some type insert or plate on the inside to reduce the very top of your arch a 1/2 inch or so.

The 63% is a heuristic (rule of thumb) that is generally accepted to produce the optimum efficiency. You may have to burn slightly more wood.

Insulate that thing!

I'm just saying. If you want that thing to cook for a day or two after the fire goes out...insulate.
