Since Jack of All Trades negates the unskilled penalty on Smarts-Based skills, and all Knowledge Skills are based on Smarts, would this apply to all Knowledge skills?

I've noted in 50F that languages appear to be Knowledge Skills (All Humans get Knowledge: Masaquani at a d6 for free to allow communication) - would that further imply that A Character with the Jack of All Trades Edge also has at least basic communication ability in any and all languages?

Yep.

Depends on the GM. Jack of All Trades isn't a 50 Fathoms Edge, so that's combining rules from different settings. How that works is going to be entirely up to the GM who made the decision to allow it in the first place.

In fact, how languages work is often the most setting-specific rule in the system.
