I made up a sentence:
"I love you most."
Does it mean that I love you more than I love others or I love you more than others do?

It means you love them more than any other person that you know.
For example, if you have a favourite singer, you prefer them the most out of all the singers you know. This doesn't mean other fans can't consider them their favourite too, it only means that they are your favourite.
In English, we use more and most to indicate how much we do things like love, prefer, dance, and so on. We also use better and best to describe how well we do things like dance, paint, and sing. Let's compare:
She dances more than him.
She dances the most in her group.
She dances better than him.
She dances the best in her group.
