I just now have updated lua[jit]tex for w32 in TeX Live 2018.
If you install TeX Live 2018 after a few days,
I hope that

lualatex -cmdx test.tex
works for

% test.tex (encoding should be utf-8)
a = img.write({ filename = "cöw.pdf"})

The option "-cmdx" should be the first option,
otherwise it is simply ignored, and non-ascii
file names do not work.
