"Loza" can never be vinyl, linoleum or any synthetic material. It's some sort of clay; that's why it's also the same name for the tableware.
And although "loseta" is not a material, but a close synonym to baldosa. We use that for smaller or slender clay tiles.

Synthetic materials are usually "piso". Personally, I have never heard "baldosa de linóleo", but Google says it's not so uncommon.

- Para instalar el piso de linóleo, contrate a un profesional.
- No pases por ahí, las lozas están mojadas.
- Quiero ponerle piso de loseta a la cochera.
- El patio tiene unas baldosas de concreto muy resistentes.
Ain't it wonderful to be alive when the Rock'n'Roll plays...
