When did the NX-01 have long range torps, the NCC-1701 did in the Kelvin timeline but she's also a lot larger then the NX-01.

That's a typo for the NCC-1701, yes.

IIRC from the directors commentary the image they were aiming for was the ballistic missile launch tubes on SSBNs rather then broadside cannons.

I can well believe that's what they were aiming for, but they certainly achieved the broadside look; honestly if I was putting a set of VLS cell type launchers on a starship I'd probably put them between the Nacelles on the dorsal side. It may not make as much practical sense but it would code better to the audience as a modern weapon I think.

Closest I've seen to that are the 303/304s on Stargate and even that looked more like the VLS on a 688I than an SSBN.
