No way to accurately tell from those measurements. The most important measurements when purchasing a suit from a sizing chart will always be the waist and chest/bust measurements. Height is a secondary measurement and is next most important followed lastly by weight, which should only be used if you are right on the boarder between two sizes in all other categories.

I will be diving in the waters off of South Africa this coming September. The water is about 50-60 degrees. I am looking to buy a wetsuit for my dives. I am considering the Henderson 5mm Thermoprene 2-piece combo. Do you think a John, step in combo is a good fit? I fit nicely into a XL Aqua Lung wetsuit so would that size work for this brand as well?

In comparison our waters on the Pacific Coast here in S. California are very simple. We'd not typically think of getting into the water in less than a 7mm suit. I think you will find yourself very cold and not enjoying yourself in a 5mm suit. Remember, the surface temperature of the water is what you'll normally see reported. Once you drop down 30 or 40 feet the temperature drops dramatically.
