Shelves are measured in a manner that all parties understand and agree upon, Karen.

Some people might think an 8" corner shelf is the measurement across the front of the shelf, and that would be a very small shelf to my thinking.

Other people might think an 8" corner shelf is the measurement from the corner to the front edge measured along the wall. That would be a shelf of about 11" across the front and a useful shelf to my thinking.

Still other people might think an 8" corner shelf would be the measurement from the corner to the front face measured perpendicular to the front face. That would be a rather large corner shelf to my thinking.

Best you and the folks making the shelf be on the same page.

The amount of lost space if your corner shelf were set into the wall tile surfaces would be only the thickness of the tile plus the thinset mortar to bond the tiles. Likely only about 3/8ths of an inch on each wall.

My opinion worth price charged.
