Tempted to type 'woman' for 'kvina', just for laughs.

The voice stresses the second syllable 'u-NU-a'; I am instinctively led to 'UN-ua'. Any thoughts?

U-nu-a has three syllables, and the last but one (penultimate) is stressed. That's "NU".

U-nu has only two syllables, and the first "U" is stressed.

Yes indeed, it changes when you add the "-a."
