The head cover bolts should be 14 Nm or 10 ft-lb...
The head cover union bolts should be tightened first( they're the four centre bolts next to the spark plug tunnels) to 16 Nm or 11.5 ft-lb.
These figures are from the Suzuki service manual...

What is the cylinderhaed torque settings

The torque settings vary from engine to engine and as I write you have not indicated the engine type you have and from which vehicle make and model.

So no one can tell you the correct settings. But go to the online haynes manual and that will probably give you the numbers you need if they cover your engine.

What is the torque pattern on a 2005 valve cover

According to PTCruiser " I have a Hayne's Manual that's for 2001 through 2003. It says to tighten all the valeve cover bolts to 40 inch pounds, initially. Then--when all are at that setting, tighten all of them to 80 inch pounds. Then when all are that tight, do the final tightening to 105 inch pounds. Sounds like a weird way to do it, but I bet it won't leak if you follow these directions ....

Before doing this, apply a "light" coating of RTV sealant onto the corners of number 1 and number 6 camshaft bearing caps (I guess some oil will leak if this isn't done). In other words, the back corners as you're facing the engine from the front of the car.

Tightening sequence: Do all the middle ones first, starting with the bolt in the middle of the valve cover, then the one just above it, then the one just below it. Then do the same sequence for the left three bolts. Then do the same sequence for the right three bolts.

Then get a Hayne's manual, because it may not be perfect, but it shows a lot of torque settings and other stuff you will need in the future.

I don't wrench all that often anymore, so I use a torque wrench. My bad!

318i timing marks dont have the timing toool need the points of the chain on the cams for 318i

If your gears do not have marks you can pull the # 1 sparkplug, insert a wooden dowel rod, rotate the engine until the piston is TDC.
remove the valve cover on the 1,3,5,7 side and adjust the cam as needed to fully closed valves(compression)
