The problem is that Graphics`InequalityGraphics` loads
Graphics`FilledPlot` and uses the Graphics`FilledPlot`Fills symbol but
BeginPackage["blah`", "Graphics`InequalityGraphics`"] adds only
Graphics`InequalityGraphics` to $ContextPath, not Graphics`FilledPlot`:

In[1]:= BeginPackage["blah`", "Graphics`InequalityGraphics`"]

In[2]:= $ContextPath

Out[2]= {"blah`", "Graphics`InequalityGraphics`", "System`"}

You can access the symbol Fills by its full name (granted, it's not
very convenient):

In[3]:= InequalityPlot[
  1 < x^2 - y^2 < 4 && x*y < 1 && x > 0 && y > 0,
  {x, -2, 3}, {y, -2, 2},
  Graphics`FilledPlot`Fills -> {White}]

Then EndPackage adds other loaded contexts to $ContextPath:

In[4]:= EndPackage[]

In[5]:= $ContextPath

Out[5]= {"blah`", "Graphics`InequalityGraphics`",
"Graphics`FilledPlot`", "Utilities`FilterOptions`", "Global`",
