This ones stumping me a bit. I read it as "keoki's four pairs of glasses?", and am wondering if there's any term or grammar rule that I'm missing that would more obviously differentiate between those two sentences.

Yes. I can't guess how to say "Where are Keoki's four pair of glasses?"

I would normally say "four pair of glasses," not "four pairs."
