I did it like this...

class Button {
  var width: Double
  var height: Double

  init(width:Double, height:Double){
    self.width = width
    self.height = height
  }
}

class RoundButton: Button{
  var cornerRadius: Double = 5.0
}

let rounded = RoundButton(width: 1.1, height: 2.2)

create your instance outside your class and give it the inherited parameters of the superclass. No need to put in the cornerRadius as its already defined in the RoundButton class

Leave off this statement from your code:

var rounded: Double = 0.0
