In what syllable is the accent in todella?

I hope I understood your question correctly - Finnish always has the accent on the first syllable with every word, with this one it goes like: to-del-la.

Yes, that was my question, thank you!

I thought Finnish didn't have intonation?

It's quite hard to notice it because the scale is very narrow, but Finnish does have intonation, namely falling intonation, even in questions.
