How do I approach this elevation map with respect to treadmill training?

Running the DC half in March. Almost all of my training til then will take place indoors on a treadmill. In preparing my body for the same changes in elevation, I would like to practice my long runs using the elevation map from the race course. How does this translate into my manual adjustment of the treadmill incline/decline settings?

I'm not worried about duplicating every little dip and peak, but getting a feel for the general outline is important (the climb from miles 4-6 etc). I want to make sure for that part and others I don't set the treadmill incline too steep, and since I'm not exactly sure what those numbers correlate to I don't know how to approach it.
