It might be better not to use this statement but have in the shell from which you launch Carbon Emacs environment variables LANG and LC_CTYPE which are set to some Chinese UTF-8 value, zh_TW.UTF-8, zh_HK.UTF-8, zh_CN.UTF-8 – or can zh_CN.GB18030, zh_CN.GB2312, zh_CN.GBK be more appropriate?

Set-language-environment has many side-effects. If you're not content with the new setup, you can use statements like

        (prefer-coding-system 'utf-8-unix)
        (prefer-coding-system 'utf-8)
        (prefer-coding-system 'utf-8m)

etc. to help Emacs do the right thing.
