There’s also:

{gho} - circle
{ro} - trunk, torso,
{Do} - velocity
{po} - morning 
{cho-} you singular/me
{jo} - resources
{'o} - vocative “o”

(The first five I thought of off the top of my head; the remainder I found by going through all of the consonants and adding o and seeing if it made a word.)

So if it is true that syllable-final {o} is pronounced as a diphthong [ow], there are quite a few words that it could apply to.
