Thanks for all the suggestions. :)

For now, I have implemented the keyboard accessibility as it is in the Image
Reorderer. i.e. the arrow keys shift focus between different selection
handles and holding on Ctrl with arrow key begins drag/resize.

I tried having the tab order in the controls inside the canvas but as they
are not different elements and are drawn on the canvas manually, I wasn't
able to find a solution to this. But I would certainly keep this point in
mind and try to have it in the future.

We have the functionality of drawing the box of desired size for tagging the
image using image editor.
