I would agree with Sedan Delivery, the toe-in looks a bit much to me. As he suggested, I would go with 1/8 and see how that works.

If you can find someone with a Hunter aligner, they can probably measure all of the other angles that you are looking for. Whenever you have all of the suspension dialed in to the best ride, handling, tire wear, etc., have the alignment checked on a Hunter aligner, to see what the measurements really are. They should be able to give you a printout of your vehicle. Then, when ever you need to have your vehicle aligned again, you can give the alignment shop your custom specs for them to set it to. If the shop says they cannot align to custom specs, find someone with a Hunter aligner.
