In my experiment, Cairo without LilyPond does not generate garbled characters.
It seems to be a LilyPond issue instead of a Cairo issue.
Here's a python-cairo sample that works fine.

#!/bin/env python3

import cairo

def main():
    with cairo.PDFSurface("test.pdf", 300, 100) as surface:
        context = cairo.Context(surface)

        context.select_font_face("Noto Serif CJK JP")
        context.move_to(12, 24)

        context.move_to(12, 48)


if __name__ == '__main__':
    main ()
