ATC Standard

In a transcript a Chinese air traffic controller says nine instead of niner. I thought it was standard throughout the world?

Yes, there are standard ways of communicating via the radio which is why you need a Radiotelephony license to operate it. I'm sure a lot of people don't use the correct ways of pronouncing a number. Some of them seem quite strange to pronounce...

0 - Zero
1 - Wun
2 - Too
3 - Tree
4 - Fower
5 - Fife
6 - Six
7 - Seven
8 - Ait
9 - Niner
Decimal - Dayseemal
Hundred - Hun Dred
Thousand - Tousand

As long as ATC / pilots can understand, it doesn't really matter about minor pronounciation deviations.
