If Aerys II did not order those 3 Kingsguard to be at the Tower of Joy
Of which there is no indication that he didn't - indeed, Aerys sent three other of his Kingsguard off to war with Rhaegar and just kept Jaime with him. Given the way they acted in Ned's dream, and the recollections of the surviving members of the Kingsguard (Barristan and Jaime) there was nothing unusual about them being there. They were exactly where they were supposed to be. Their being there was only unusual to Ned, not knowing the likely reason for their presence at the Tower after Aerys died.
