This page explains what those numbers mean. Personally, I find it all very confusing and would probably just contact the seller rather than trying to figure it out myself. If they don't know what it would be in hand-knitting terms, ask them to measure the WPI (wraps per inch) for you to get an idea. Info here.

My guess is that it's pretty fine, but you can always use multiple strands to get the gauge you want.

There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman
