yes you can, KAuCl2 has obviously a larger moleclar weight, which basicly
means that a 5% solution of KAuCl2 cotains less gold (Au) than a 5% solution
of AuCl3. I could calculate the difference for you (not hard). But I usually
tone by inspection, and I use a small volume of diluted gold toner and use
that single-shot. So the concentration isn't that important, just tone until
you get what you like.

Can't you get Tetenal goldtoner in Turkey? It's quite useable, diluted 1:10
(not stable!)
