a) You don't.

   You can avoid setting the keyrate in windowmaker altogether and let
   it inherit the settings of your environment (xinit, kde, gnome,
   or whatever).

b) You use the Windowmaker "Preferences Utility" to set it up.  Look at
   the root menu -> Appearance submenu.

   Be careful that this might conflict with the notion of keyrate that
   KDE has and one of them might override the other.
