apart from changing your form to force the list type, you could try 
(untested code):

<dtml-let checkbox="(checkbox==_.str(checkbox) and [checkbox] 
or checkbox">
...
</dtml-let>

There is no easy way to check whether a value in Zope is a list, 
tuple, or integer, but there is an easy way to check whether it is a 
string since strings are the only type left unchanged by the str 
function.

More advanced type recognition generally requires trying various 
things and catching the exceptions that are raised. I have put a 
PythonMethod that does general type recognition in a HowTo at
