I'm sure that's totally wrong, but that's what I'm going for storywise for now.
No offense, but this sounds incredibly fan-wanky. While I agree that it's possible Marcus (and maybe April, if he actually has anything to do with this film) found the Botany Bay, I sincerely doubt Ceti Alpha will appear in this movie... unless you accept the idea that Marcus et al. banished Khan and his followers there, and Carol Marcus just happened to choose that planet to test a weapon, etc..., at which point movie goers will say "If they wanted to do STII, why not just show us the original??"
I will say this: "kudos" to Bad Robot for playing a huge mind game with us. The Khan idea has been raised and shot down so many times that one can read this "BIG SPOILER" and have no idea if it's true or not. Whether it's really Khan, or NOT Khan, we're still guaranteed to be surprised. No one's going to take them to court for lying. Well played, JJ.
