8 and 16 bit values are stored as 32bits internally and int <==> float conversion is a fast operation.
i think the best thing you can do is use profiling counters for clEnqueueNDRangeKErnel
In this way you can exactly determine the cost of float conversions and decide whether you can bear with them or not.
I would like to know your findings too.
