It doesn’t work because this is not exactly using Seaside. 
It’s using the Seaside canvas, and that’s it.

As you said, the browser does not get any mimetype and it seems Safari doesn’t take utf-8 as the default..

When you use the WABuilder, there’s the #rootBlock: method to render the root part of the document, where it seems one can pass the encoding to be used by the browser.
Try this:

	| fullDocument |
	fullDocument := WAHtmlCanvas builder 
		fullDocument: true;
		rootBlock: [:root | root meta contentType: (WAMimeType textHtml charset:'utf-8') ];
		render: [ :html | html text: 'Ñuñoa' ].
	 '/tmp/test.html' asFileReference writeStreamDo: [ :out | out << fullDocument ].
