You should google for mathalign.pdf which explains and shows examples 
for the matrix, cases etc. environments.

To get the same result as your LaTeX example you can use the m key for 
\startalign.

\starttext

\startformula
     \startalign[m=3,distance=3em]
     \NC K \NC \approx G * H                            \NC  i   \NC = 
j+k     \NC B \NC \subset C  \NR
     \NC H \NC \approx A_{0}*B_{0}                      \NC  i'  \NC = 
j'+k'   \NC C \NC = D\cap E  \NR
     \NC G \NC \approx \coprod_{\alpha\in A} L_{\alpha} \NC  i'' \NC  
=j''+k'' \NC A \NC = D \cup E \NR
     \stopalign
\stopformula
