Sino-Tibetan, actually. But of course there are "tonal languages from
SE Asia" that aren't included, like the whole Tai-Kadai family, or Vietnamese
and Cambodian, which are Austro-Asiatic (along with the non-tonal Munda
languages of India).

Whether Altaic includes Korean and Japanese is still controversial.
Uralic, in any case, is no longer considered part of the same family.
