InequalityPlot and InequalityPlot3D (which are functions defined in  
the package <<Graphics`InequalityGraphics` and not a Mathematica  
built-in functions) work only with polynomial and rational functions  
since they depend on CylindricalDecomposition which only works for  
polynomial inequalities.

You could try using ContourPlot3D from the  <<Graphics`ContourPlot3D`
