Is it true that the Docker acquired the Unikernel technology and MirageOS?
Thus, this technology is under Docker control and Xen can't use Unikernel without Docker license?

Short answer: no.

Longer answer: MirageOS is permissively licensed and this did not change with Docker's acquisition of Unikernel Systems (an organization which formed after MirageOS was created and released to the public).  Work on MirageOS continued outside of Unikernel Systems and Docker before, during, and after the acquisition.
