He should know what Atlanteans are, since Namor was making very high-profile attacks on New York City around that time. Additionally, the Marvels miniseries and the Silver Age publication of the Uncanny X-Men's meeting with the FF in FF v.1 #28 (July, 1964) both place Uncanny v.1 #8 (November 1964) after FF Annual #1 (1963), wherein the armies of Atlantis invaded NYC.
And the X-Men met Namor in Uncanny v.1 #6 (July, 1964), when Magneto first tried recruiting Sub-Mariner into the Brotherhood. It'd be pretty hard for Scott *not* to know about Atlanteans after that one. Atlantis is one of the few Really Weird Things in the MU that the general public has known about since almost the beginning of the Silver Age. (Come to think of it, mutants are probably the other one.)
Asgardians, not so much, since I don't think most people in the MU believed Thor's account of his own origins until Asgard showed up in Oklahoma.
