You can't really convert for thread pitch, but you can for diameter. A #10 wood or sheetmetal screw is approx the same as a 3/16 threaded screw (aka 10-24 or 10-32 depending on thread pitch). A number 5 wood screw is about 1/8", which is close to a metric M4 diameter. it can be confusing for sure....
