I know this is not really helpful, but my comment would be: *don't*
try using a wireless k/b through a KVM.

Both KVMs and wireless HID kit rely a lot on device detection and
auto-negotiated connections. I would /expect/ a pairing of them to be
unreliable.

This argument summarises my views on wireless keyboards:

In other words: don't.
