It's not a long vowel (武内 = take - no¹ - uchi), so generally you'd pronounce the vowels separately: no - u. A couple examples of Japanese folks saying it: [1] [2].

Depending on the speaker, though, the vowel sounds might get merged together or even turned into a long o, like here: [3].

1: The no particle is sometimes omitted from place/personal names when written, even if it's still pronounced.
