Manu4CFD is on a distinguished road

I am trying to model a conical velocity profile as shown in the image attached.
The flow enters the computational domain from a surface that lies in the XZ plane. The half cone angle is 30 degrees and the flow velocity magnitude is 45 m/s. The steady-state simulation is done in Ansys Fluent.

In order to model this scenario, what should be X, Y, and Z components in the velocity inlet boundary condition?

Any recommendation is much appreciated.
