So, the question is probably terribly trivial, but I haven't been able to find documentation on this to support my point. Please tell me, is it possible to activate RDS SAL without AD? If yes, where can I read about it? Thank you.

    If you install RDS in workgroup server, you must use device CALs.

    Refer: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2833839/guidelines-for-installing-the-remote-desktop-session-host-role-service

    The following is a good read to understand how to deploy RDS in workgroup.

    Hope this helps
