' is used for feet
" for inches
8' 13" would actually mean 9' 1" ... I might be getting lost somewhere in that though, I'm not sure
As for conversions, use an online calculator - 5 meters would be roughly 16' 4". but you will need accurate measurements (5/7th of an inch etc.)

p.s. I'm no architect either, it's just personal experience

The previous poster is right about the ' and ", but it doesn't make sense to me. 7'12" is 8 feet, so....
