If the knocking is actually coming from the top, likely it's valves. You have hydraulic lifters, so there could be sticking valves and the engine could use a cleaning. Otherwise, the knocking could actually be coming from below: worn bearings. Change the oil, or even add an oil treatment, like Seafoam. If that doesn't quiet it, have a mechanic look at it.
