The ACSM and MET formula: ACSM Kcal/Min ~= 0.0005 * bodyMassKg * metersWalkedInAMin + 0.0035 ~= 0.0005 * 70 * 96 + 0.0035 ~= 3.3635 ...
It would be a good approximation, it will probably add a slight error but such a formula in itself is by necessity quite inaccurate.
From a step count alone, I wouldn't bother as the error could be as much as +/- 40%. Primarily as your step length changes with speed, as does wind resistance and energy expended, the gradient of a walk, your body fat percentage and fitness level will also affect the calculation, but the errors these factors introduce can be reduced by aggregating several ...
