why does everyone ask if they can understand the stewie?
He built a time machine, and talks to everyone, pretty sure he can talk

Typically, the only ones that can understand him is Brian and other babies. However, other people can understand him when its convenient for the plot (the "road to..." episodes, star wars episodes, the 100th episode, and a few odd episodes here and there). Meg has been shown to understand him from time to time, but that's quite rare.

He only talks to other babies and Brian normal, every one else understands him but speaks to him like a little baby, indicating that they hear baby talk when he speaks.

When it's necessary, people hear him just fine, but some characters only get the gist of what he says. They said that in the episode where stewie and brian tried getting Cleveland and Loretta back together.

MacFarlane has established a few general rules as to how Stewie communicates with others.

Brian Griffin always understands
Brian is, as of now, the only main character whose ability to understand Stewie is unambiguous; the two always converse normally. In "Running Mates", Brian briefly appears to hear Stewie's thoughts; this phenomenon has not been explored in subsequent episodes.

In two episodes, another baby by the name of Olivia communicates similarly to Stewie, with the exception that she is taken seriously by adults. Also, Jillian (Brian's girlfriend of several episodes) appears to understand Stewie just as well.

Adults understand, but disregard Stewie
At the end of the episode "E. Peterbus Unum", the question of whether adults could understand Stewie is raised. In the DVD audio commentary,[citation needed] MacFarlane explains adults can understand him, but don't take him seriously, "sort of like... if a four-year-old who [could] talk told you to '**** off', you'd laugh, because it's cute." In this manner, characters acknowledge Stewie, but pay no mind to his often-insulting addresses, such as calling Peter "the fat man" and referring to Lois by her given name. His insults are occasionally heard, such as when Stewie tells Lois "Why don't you burn in hell?!" Lois replies, "Well, no dessert for you, young man." Stewie generally is insulting to both Meg and Chris, but does acknowledge them. He also is one of the few characters who calls Meg 'Megan'.

Also when he does the radio show with Brian as Dingo and the Baby, other adults are able to fully comprehend him, but Lois never hears what we do as viewers.

Its called an artistic licence.
