I am not sure if it is compatible with Lion, but older versions of Handbrake are possibly your best bet, pre version 0.9.5., as the newer version only outputs to mpeg4.
Failing that you can use ffmpegx, again if compatible with Lion (both should be to be fair, Lion isn't a massive upgrade to the core OS).
Bear in mind results will not look as good as the MKV, but use high quality settings and have patience (it will be slow) and you should be ok.

Links here for older Handbrake versions:

FFMPEGX:

ffmpegX a DVD, SVCD, VCD, CVD, VOB, DivX, XviD, H.264, PSP, iPod, MP4, MOV, FLV encoder for Mac OSX
