You need 9.7:1 (9.68 I think it was),
I'd pick 10->22 and 10->44 for the sprockets (4.4 *2.2 = 9.68)
[EDIT]
Oh right sorry... no additional jackshaft
well then 10->97 I'm afraid
or 8->78 (still not a fan of the 8T sprocket!)

So if I get a front sprocket that has 10 teeth how many does the back one need to have for me to get as much pull I can out of it
