While \setuplist inherits values from \setupcounter doesn't mean it 
supports all of them and keys like "counter" work only when you create a 
new instance which uses the counter of another instance, e.g. you create 
two enumerations but both of them share one counter.

Another problem is that you assume counter refers to the page value 
while it would make more sense to link it to the section value (or float 
number for figures or tables).

You can show the realpage value but there is no proper interface setting 
(e.g. \setuplist[chapter][pagenumber=realpage]) for this yet and I think 
it's better to do this.
