The numbers that the machine reads out on an EKG usually have very little meaning.  They represent intervals in the cardiac cycle.  Yours are all normal.  The only mildly abnormal thing that i see is the QRS axis of -7 which, if you have high blood pressure may mean that your heart has undergone a process of hypertrophy (abnormal growth).  The most likely reason why you were told to see a cardiologist is not because of those numbers, instead you may have ST segment changes or Q waves on the actual raw EKG.  As long as you are not having any symptoms, you are ok at this point.
