short answer: no, a mac is required.

long answer: sort of. the sdk was ported to work in visual studio, but
only parts of it (just compiling). quite a bit does not work, including
being able to run the simulator to test apps and there's certainly no
way to load the apps onto a device either. basically, all you can do is
see if something compiles. this was also a while ago and i don't know
if anyone bothered to get more recent sdks working. it's kind of stupid
to bother, since a mac can be had for very little money.

short commentary to longer answer: the two you mention look like cross
platform sdks, not the actual ios (or android or whatever else sdk they
support). that has its advantages and disadvantages. one of the main
disadvantages is that apps written with cross-platform sdks tend to not
look like native apps and are usually slower too. sometimes that may
not matter, but many times it does.
