A bit to fast, sorry!
First: arrow up/down was meant, second: arrow keys are not an option 
key, so I am trying once more:

Shift + . -> Round to nearest integer upward
Ctrl + . -> Round to nearest integer downward

-- Since shift on the keyboard is placed over Ctrl, I think this could 
be intuitive and easy to remember.
Still I think you will have to place the mouse over the relevant field, 
or select it for this function to be activated.
