I am trying to use The parameters of north, south, east, and west needs values: north=float Northern limit of geographic region (outer edge) south=float Southern limit of geographic region (outer edge) east=float Eastern limit of geographic region (outer edge) west=float Western limit of geographic region (outer edge)

I only have the values for my map, which is in this format: north: 15N south: 10N east: 125E west: 120E rows: 6000 cols: 6000

How do I convert them?

You can use gdalinfo to get the boundingbox/region in float format. Looking at your values, I think this is the correct syntax: north=15 south=10 east=125 west=120
