From a space perspective it makes no difference. Integer and Decimal(8) or Decimal(9) all take 4 bytes.
Integer math is faster so I would recommend Integer over Decimal if the values will allways be integers.
On the other hand, if you think the values may need to increase to 9 digits at some point in the future you might want to go with Decimal(9) instead.
