I see that the living rules clarify that the PRC can fire cruise missiles without using an appropriate aircraft or CV/SAG:

"The PRC may fire Cruise Missiles without requiring a specific unit, but are then subject to range restrictions [15.1.1.1]."

But the range restrictions then say:

"15.1.1.1 PRC Cruise Missile Range: The PRC may allocate
Cruise Missile Strikes only against targets in the East China Sea,
Taiwan Straits, South China Sea, Spratlys, Central Approaches,
and Ryukyu At Sea Boxes (and associated Inshore Boxes and
All-Sea hexes)."

My assumption is that targets on the actual Taiwan map are considered to part of the Taiwan Straits sea area, and so in range, but I'm not sure...

Yes, the island of Taiwan is considered to be part of the Taiwan Straits.
