That's because the drawbox filter does not know anything about
text_w or text_h. Also w and h are the desired box dimensions not the
dimensions of the video. And BTW, x should be 0, if you want the box
to span from the left to the right edge of the frame. Also, you can
omit w if the box shall span the video width.
Have a look at which constants this filter accepts.

Here is an example that works:

    drawbox="y=(ih-h):h=30:color=black at 1:t=max"
