Pretending Raellus is wrong for a moment (I don't think he is), I would think the British garrison would stay in Hong Kong -- possibly beefed up with Chinese troops and naval forces. Protection of that port and the airport would be a giant priority to the Chinese as well as the British and the US, and if not destroyed, seizure of the port would be important to the Soviets. The use of the port facilities and the airfield to attack the Chinese in the rear would be the only reason I can think of for why the Soviets might not nuke it.
