and as for your original question, I think you have answered it already yourself.
In most SLR/DSLR cameras, I think the closest match is 1/45 exposure, so use that exposure lenght, and then change the ISO to 40 or 50 if you don't have the ability to set to 40, but then keep in mind this slight 10 ISO difference when shooting Kodachrome.
This all goes if your DSLR lets you change ISO rating of the sensor. If not, you'll just have to find out the fixed ISO of your sensor and then calculate the difference in your head.
Even if you set everything right, there will probably be differences between these two images even if you match the exposure. It is hard enough as it is emulating Kodachrome with other reversal film. Kodachrome is always slightly denser (darker) than your usual reversal film at the same exposure, but that is not a mis-exposure, its just the part of the whole Kodachrome look: contrasty and strong blacks.
One more thing, if you try to edit the digital images by increasing the contrast, know that it's not as easy as that. Kodachrome has a different way of "contrasting", than your usual photoshop contrast boost.
