It could also be Kryptonians have far better photographic memory even as an infant and he has strange vivid dreams of seeing his father walk around in a cape, in the small amount of time before he was put in a capsule.
I didn't really see it as him "impersonating" Superman. He struck the iconic pose because... well, that's just something that comes natural to him. And little kids have always loved running around in capes (if not to mimic superheroes then characters like Zorro), so that didn't seem like a big deal to me.
