In other words, you are correct. Out of all the scores of things that are unrealistic about the story of a man from space who can fly and shoot X-Rays from his eyes, the meteors from planet Krypton are definitely one of them.
I'd have been much happier had they came up with some explanation such as there being a wormhole that bridged the Kryptonian galaxy with the Milky Way and that both Kal El and the shockwave of debris from Krypton traveled through said wormhole.
If memory serves, this was the exact explanation used by DC Comics' Superman editors at least up until Crisis on Infinite Earths
(and possibly even after that, I'm not sure) to explain how the hell so much Kryptonite ended up on Earth.
