According to all definitions I can find, dramatic irony IS when the audience knows something that the character doesn't. That's certainly how it is described in this trope.

Neither of those are examples of dramatic irony. Dramatic irony, despite the falsehood perpetrated by so many English teachers, is not when the audience knows something that the characters don't. It's when a character says something that he or she means literally that the author does not. Since the author is using words with something other than their literal intention, that is irony.
