For real, Yasuo's has to be the most confusing kit to read so far, but I've got most of it already.

What I'm wondering is when a champion is knocked "airborne", is that different than a normal knockup, and a separate but similar form of crowd control that functions as a means to trigger his ultimate?

If not, and it is a knockup, does that mean any knockup (janna, alistar) can be used to trigger his ultimate?

Yes, launches make the target airborne.

It says in his reveal that other champion's knock-ups work for the airborne condition of his ult.

If you read further into the champion reveal -I believe it states this in the Teamfights section- it's said that his ult can be used on anyone who is affected by any knockup effect. So yes, Janna, Alistar, Zyra, Cho, Malph, and anyone else who has knockup effects will be able to open Yasuo's ult for use.

No that would be silly.

But corki Valkyrie or Trist jump... that could be interesting.

Do the small knockups from things like Powerball and Let's Bounce count?

Both of those count as dashes. It's why you can hit Tristana with skill-shots mid jump.

Nah. Self jumps don't count.
