See section 2.3 of http://www.arl.army.mil/arlreports/2013/ARLTR6494.pdf for rectangular and elliptical statistics on asymmetric bivariate normal distributions.
If we are going to make separate estimates of variance in each axis, \(s_x^2, s_y^2\) note that the confidence interval in one dimension uses \(\chi^2\) values with (n  1) degrees of freedom, and:
 \(\sigma_x^2 \in \left[\, \frac{(n1)s_x^2}{\chi_2^2}, \ \frac{(n1)s_x^2}{\chi_1^2} \,\right]\)
