Easiest to have a variety of keys or adjustable an cam sprocket. I'm sure cam timing will be covered in a forum topic or you can find a Youtube video.
Set it up "dot to dot" - Find TDC accurately - Turn the crank to the setting point stated for the cam - Find the crank angle where maximum lift actually occurs - fit a key or adjust by the difference in the two crank angles. Most also allow a bit for chain stretch/ bedding in if it's new.
It's easier on a bench with the head off, but can be done with the engine built up and fitted if you're "time challenged".

It beats me why people sell cams with bastard keyways, especially when it is machined from a billet.
The people to ask about this are Swiftune.

Build the engine, leaving this to last in case someone comes up with an answer, and be prepared to fit a standard key and line it up using the dots.
It is not too difficult ( if you are still young enough to bend ) to take out the rad, remove the timing cover and get at the sprockets with the engine in situ.; by which time, when you know the answer, the chain will have stretched and you may have purchased an adjustable sprocket.
