Stem Size?

I am pieceing together a new bike.

I have two separate questions re: Road Stems

1. What is the correct size stem for a short guy (5'4"). I'm pretty evenly proportioned. 90mm?, 100mm?, 110mm?. Help!

2. I was given a free stem by a friend (a Deda Newton 31) but I bought Winwood Carbon handlebars with the finger and thumb grooves. This would be considered oversize yes? Does this stem work for that?. It doesn't seem like it from the general test I did which was to remove the 4 clamp faceplate and wrapped the stem around the center of the bars and screwed the plate back on. There seemed to be space left between the clamp and the rest of the stem body.

Thank you in advance for anyone who responds to my thread.
