Computing values for k and epsilon is not a simple task and more often than not you will have to guess for the initial solution. You can use the equation given already to guess an initial value for k and a good initial guess for epsilon can be made using e = .9k^(3/2) / l; where l is your turbulent mixing length. The mixing length can be estimated using l = K*(1-e^(-y+/A+)*y; where K is the von Karman constant ~.41, and A+, for your case, would be 26 I believe (zero streamwise pressure gradient flow).
