Wheel size is a non-issue. A lot of people commute on folding bikes with 20" or 16" wheels. If your BMX is set up for efficient pedalling, which mainly means having the handlebars and especially seat at the right height, it should make an acceptable commuter. Most of the kids I see riding BMX-style bikes (which I presume are not the same thing as BMX-bikes) have the seat set much too low and the handlebar too high, and I can't imagine riding like that.
