Should Marvel change the twins' parentage in the 616 universe, they would simply be undoing a retcon that was unnecessary in the first place. It would make sense to change Wanda & Pietro's history to make Bob & Madeleine Frank their parents. It could be explained away as either a scheme of Magneto's to control them, as he had long sought to do, or an illusion engineered by Chthon with the intent of harming Wanda. Or there could be some other explanation since the current crop of comic writers have a seemingly endless supply of idiotic ideas at hand.

Supposedley, the Terrigan Mists are unleashed on Earth and begin affecting people, so that COULD be the way to make them Inhumans. I don't think it will happen, but there's always a chance.
Since the twins were born on Wundagore Mountain, a better explanation for their powers would be that the High Evolutionary's genetic experimentation or even the energies and chemicals he was developing affected them in utero. Their mother, Magda, and Madeleine Frank were both on or near the mountain while pregnant and could well have been affected by HE's experimentation.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
