Installing Pet Gate

I'm trying to install a pet gate. The link to the manual is I already have a cordless drill and a set of drills but I don't know what size drill bit to use. In the description, the screws are 5/8" but I'm assuming the drill bit needs to be larger when drilling the hole. (I wasn't able to find 5/8 drill bits in my set) Any help is appreciated.

The 5/8 referred to is the length of the screw - not the diameter. It's a number 6 screw.

Either a 1/16" or a 3/32" drill bit should be adequate for a pilot hole.
