"An instance of the JVM" would generally refer to one copy of the running program; you can have many copies of java.exe running at once, so indeed, you can have many instances of the JVM on one computer.
Technically, some JVM implementations might allow you to have more then one instance inside a single program, although Sun's JVM implmentation can't do that.

Do environment variables have a relation with JVM.
