Thanks for all comments,
As far I understand the word has this meaning in post-Biblical translations,
further it is not an Egyptian loanword because in this language the name is
"iaqet" (see: Medinet Habu calendar and the Ebers papyrus).
Because in this verse 2 other "alliums" are mentiond (the onion and garlic) it
is logical khaw-tseer' is also an allium.
