We can still find blue/green eyes amongst Northern Indians today.
If you accept the literal word of the 32 marks (and there is no indication to do so according to the Pali Canon), then the color is clearly not as light as the photos you have shown in your post.
His skin is the color of gold (Pali: suva n nava no; Lakkhana sutta)
A 'golden' color is closer to brown and could even be 'golden-brown.'
But most importantly, color is meaningless and does not matter.
