I assume unicode is a 16 bit representation of characters.

Actually, unicode is a character<-->  number mapping without an upper
limit to the numbers.

Once upon a time, 16 bit where enough to represent all defined unicode
characters, but even then several different encodings into a computer
readable format existed. Programs that relied on unicode == 16 bit
(including LaTeX) have problems now with higher unicode numbers.

FYI, LyX uses utf32 internally, that is the 32 bit version, and utf8 as its file format.
