At 10NL people often play fit or fold after the flop.
So on the one hand you keep KQ in the hand which is good.
On the other you keep AK/AQ in the hand, which is bad postflop if the A hits.
Postflop, unless the villain hits the flop he will not continue.. they just don't!!
So with 2 Kings accounted for, do we want to call to keep in KQ with the hopes that a K appears (maybe a queen) on the flop or would we be better shoving to get AK to play for his stack?
Personaly I think for most 10NL players AK is more likey to be 4 bet than KQ. There really isnt a 4-betting game at this level.
