Generally when setting up pretty much any carb, whether it's on your car or lawn mower you can pre set your idle mixture screws to 1-1 1/2 turns and the same with your idle speed adjusting screw. That usually will allow you to start your engine . Then after warm up you can fine tune it with your tachometer. That being said there is nothing wrong with counting turns from original settings.
