Sicillians are an unholy mix of Italians, Lombards, Greeks and Arabs.

So the only answer is Sicillian.

Sicilians are just considered generic mediterranean

My dear American, in order to properly answer this question you'd need to tell me exactly what towns where they from. Take my region Basilicata as an example.
Some villages are populated by descendands of gallo italic speaking colonists, other are full of swarthy curly haired fucks with surnames such as Solimano, then you go someplace else and find big guys with blonde hair, in other areas you have arberesh-greaco fucks who stab you.
There's a lot of variability.

Sicily. Greeks, Phoenicians, Ayyrabs, Berbers, even more Greeks in the form of Byzantine, Albanians, gallo-italic speakers from northern Italy then Spaniards.
You americans have this silly romantic notion as European nations being monolitic entities. There's no such thing as the italian people, there's a lot of "italian" peoples tho. We are a clusterfuck of MUH heritages.

Dude staph. Some sicilians are as white as they come, whiter than your average northern italian. Some are ayyrab and dark as fuck. It varies.

Americans need to stop to apply their notions of "race" to places and time periods where they dont apply.
Medieval and modern Sicilians didnt and dont think of themselves as "white" or "black" (these are colonial paradigms).
Most of the times they dont even consider themselves Italian.
When you ask what "race" Sicilians are you automatically condition the dicussion to be about American notions of race and identity (which is an interesting topic but has nothing to do with Sicily per se).
