In the D&D 5e module Out of the Abyss, one effect of faerzress is:

Any creature attempting to teleport into, within, or out of a faerzress-suffused area must succeed on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw. On a failed save, the creature takes 1d10 force damage and the teleportation attempt fails. Even if the save succeeds, the teleportation attempt can suffer a mishap as if the destination was known only by description, regardless of how familiar the destination actually is. See the table in the teleport spell for more information.

So if I attempt to teleport in faerzress, I have a chance of teleporting to a "similar area". I presume that this also applies to spells other than teleport, such as misty step and dimension door. But under "similar area" it says:

Generally, you appear in the closest similar place, but since the spell has no range limit, you could conceivably wind up anywhere on the plane.

So if I misty step in faerzress, make the CON save, and roll 45 on 1d100 ("similar area"), can I be teleported anywhere on the plane, or only as far as misty step can teleport me (30 feet)?

Most likely not

The Teleport spell you quoted states:

Generally, you appear in the closest similar place, but since the spell has no range limit, you could conceivably wind up anywhere on the plane.

This seems to be a clear implication that the teleport mishap won't violate the range limitation of the spell in question. If the mishap could send you outside of the spell's original range, writing "since the spell has no range limit" as the reason for potentially ending on the other side of the planet would not make much sense.
