It will be a lot easier to use KMS with an AD environment, but it's not really required. Look at this Technet article http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff793405.aspx to get the needed info to prepare the DNS server for KMS activating without AD. KMS is very dependent on the correct DNS entries to find the KMS host. If you don't use a Microsoft DNS server, you have to configure the needed records by hand. In a Microsoft environment things will be mostly get "autoconfigured".
