Shouldn't "I am not understanding" be correct, too?

That's a fairly unusual construction in English isn't it? But it's been added now. Thanks for the suggestion.

One is more of a status and the other is more of a process, like, "I'm hearing you, but I'm not understanding." And it does go well with the Welsh construction as we've been learning it here. Thanks for adding it.
