It's a Khornate fleet because it's Tzeentch's fault.
If you think the RT might make a few passes and retreat if it becomes clear he can't handle this, then sure, that can happen too. But obviously, he wants to win too (full control of nanobots dangled in front of him). The mercs are still working up and getting used to the hyperdrive and they need his techpriests (which he has lent a few) to teach them.
The Chaos fleet can be a little damaged if you think that evens the odds a little (the note about lack of escorts is fair enough)
