No you can't set up these access points without a SonicWALL branded UTM appliance. The What You Need to Begin section of the Getting Started Guide for this product states the following:

• A SonicWALL SonicPoint-N Dual-Band appliance
SonicOS Enhanced 5.2 or higher, installed on one of the following SonicWALL UTM appliances:
TZ 210 series
NSA series
E-Class NSA series
• An 802.3af compliant PoE injector or PoE-capable switch
• An active Internet connection
• A configured interface on the SonicWALL security appliance set to a zone type of “wireless”
• A location selected for placement of your SonicPoint such as a wall or ceiling
• Clients capable of 802.11n wireless communications

The Configuring Wireless Access section of the guide also states the following:
This section describes how to configure SonicPoints with a SonicWALL UTM appliance. SonicWALL SonicPoints are wireless access points specially engineered to work with SonicWALL UTM appliances.
