Kenya and Tanzania are here because of some Swahili sultanates that were briefly tributaries/vassals of the Ottomans. Akrotiri and Dhekelia for the UK.

What about Ceuta and Melilla? If they held those, then Spain should also be on the list.

Nope. Ceuta was under Portuguese rule and Melilla was already under Spanish rule in the short time that the Ottomans vassalised Morocco between 1576 and 1578.

A lot of those territories were conquered by the Khedivate of Egypt, an Ottoman vassal. There were also the Emirate of Harar and Imamate of Aussa, which were also vassals under the Ottoman Empire for a while.

Where is Iceland?

and also isn't Poland-Lithuania be a vassal for a short time

Iceland was only raided by muslim pirates and not occupied by the Ottomans themselves. Poland-Lithuania once being a vassal to the Ottomans is a common misconception, mainly due to the Báthory vassal prince of Transylvania being on throne. Despite this, he remained quite anti-Ottoman and no intention of submitting to the Turks.

I think Ottomans get Fiji, Tuvalu and Tonga

And I have read that, they had Comoros,Seychelles and Sao Tome and Principe for a short time

THERE IS NO WAY THAT OTTOMANS HAD REACH MALAYSIA OR SUMATRA
