fixed gear fitment help please

So Im trying to buy a new kilo tt to ride and Im having sizing issues.
I used the bike fitment calculator and these are my results


My thread was closed but I was able to take the proper measurements this time here they are.


Fit Calculator

Your Measurements

Gender:M
Inseam:29.85 in
Trunk:24.5 in
Forearm:13 in
Arm:23.7 in
Thigh:22.6 in
Lower Leg:19.96 in
Sternal Notch:54.28 in
Total Body Height:66.3 in

The Competitive Fit

Seat tube range c-c49.1 - 49.6
Seat tube range c-t50.6 - 51.1
Top tube length52.5 - 52.9
Stem Length10.2 - 10.8
BB-Saddle Position64.7 - 66.7
Saddle-Handlebar49.6 - 50.2
Saddle Setback3.4 - 3.8

I have no clue how to compare this to the geometry specs on bikes direct for the kilo tt.
I just want to figure out what size I need, and I can't read the charts properly.
Can't someone explain to how to read the charts so I can figure out what size I need or even just tell me witch size I need from the info I've provided.
All I want is just some help or understanding.
Thank you.

The last time I checked, the Kilo TT geo chart wasn't written in hieroglyphics. Pick the frame with the closest size top tube as your fit calc results show. Done.
