I just purchased the same model and have been searching on-line for the exact same information. Not sure if you still need it but the Sears Outlet website lists the opening dimensions for the Kenmore Elite Oven 4809 as Width 28-1/2 in. min., 29 in. max. Depth 23-1/2 in. Height 29-1/16 in.
For anyone installing a replacement oven controller #WB27T10276, there is a GE publication # 31-10515 that should answer your questions. I bought a rebuilt control that did not have this info. with it. Lucky for me, a retail appliance parts store opened a box with a new control in it and copied the instructions for me.
It is definately not possible to change a gas to an electric. There are very few options for double gas ovens as electric is far superior. IF you have to go with gas , check out the local Habitat for Humanity store. You should be able to buy a used gas oven. It probably won't have the self clean feature. You would be better off trying e bay or a local scratch and dent outlet for a nice electric convection oven. It will need a seperate 220 volt circuit probably 40 amps. This isn't as expensive as you would think. Use the installer from the dealer you purchase the oven from. They are usually a lot cheaper than a union electricial worker. The 4 sizes available for built in ovens are the old standard of 24" the newer standard of 27" and the most common and useful 30" This is the current standard but you will also still be able to get 27" There is also a custom standard of 36" which would be for the very high end lines. These are all width measurements. The height will vary with the model. Most cabinets are made to accept various heights by removing one or more drawers underneath.
