Well, Zod and crew had to go to Earth to find Clark and get the Codex out of him. It could have been simple laziness that made their decision to kyrptoform Earth. It's also possible that it's easier to kryptoform a planet that was similar to Krypton than to kryptoform a planet that is incapable of supporting human or Kryptonian life. Or, more than likely, there would have been no conflict if the Kryptonians made their new home on another planet in the solar system.
