This might be a stupid question, but why is it Tuunisii rather than Tunisii or Tuniisi?

Because that is the way it is pronounced, with a long/elongated "u" sound which is represented by the letter "waaw/و " which represents the "uu" sound and the final long "ii" sound which is represented by the letter "yaa".
