Speaker placement help - surrounds or atmos? - pics inside

Side speakers - can be either surrounds wall mounted at ear level or atmos elevations mounted high on wall.
Rear speakers- can be either surrounds wall mounted at ear level or up high aiming down or atmos elevations mounted high on wall. Rear seating row can be pulled about 1' from the back wall
So I am thinking that this will either be 7.2 or 5.2.2 ?
Looking for the best sounding setup given room limitations.
Not an expert at all but I have similar room size and set up but slightly smaller with 2 rows elevated seating as well (3 seats per row), Room dimensions 17 x 14 x 9.
I have 7.1. But have you considered 7.1.2 with front elevations that way you have just need additional speakers wires at the front (no need for snaking wires) etc.
I was thinking of this but have a bulk head vent at the front which messes things up a bit.
