I don't know if any notable KOs are gained through +atk, but I don't see the point in running +speed.
It used to be +speed for a while because of a particular metallic purple bug that ran amok in the OU tier, finding a spot in pretty much every team.
Now, there's no reason not to run adamant. Scarf Hydreigon, Scarf/DD Haxorus and... uh... Scarf Lucario? (lol) are pretty much inexistant in this meta. You may or may not get additional KOs, but it lets you put Ferro/Forry and the other steels in 2HKO range easier
