Yes, that is confusing.

It should have said 170/175 (170mm wide rear hub/175mm crank length).

You do need the 190/175 set.

Just send them back and re-order :)

Like the mayor said, some frames work with either. I have a carbon Corvus frame with 197 rear spacing. Most I know run the spindle for the 177 width rear hubs, and it works just fine, giving a narrower Q factor. If you have knee issues this might be a concern. For me, the wider prevents any heel contact with stays since I use size 50 winter boots.
