If a zircon is labeled as coming from the Alteelva River (Norway), would this locality be more likely Store Kufjord?

Neither to me sounds like a 'locality', as both are bodies of water - one a river, the other a fjord. If I were you, I'd look on mindat.org to see if one of the Norwegian localities such as this classic one fits your specimen and location names https://www.mindat.org/loc-32878.html

Further there is no river in Norway spelled as you have it spelled. There is one spelled Altaelva in Finnmark - famous for its salmon and is near the famous zircon location on an island in the fjord which that river runs into at Alta.
