The docstring of struct.unpack currently reads

Unpack from the buffer buffer (presumably packed by pack(fmt, ...)) according to the format string fmt. The result is a tuple even if it contains exactly one item. The buffer must contain exactly the amount of data required by the format (len(bytes) must equal calcsize(fmt)).

It should probably read "len(buffer) must equal calcsize(fmt)".
