If the marks are at 16 inches, 32 inches, 48 inches, etcetera, those are the distances studs in a wall are supposed to be apart, measured from the center of one stud to the center of the next one. Wall studs are the vertical pieces of wood which the sheetrock is nailed to. I think the marks indicate 1/2 meter increments.

Why does my friend's 1.7 carat round look bigger than my 1.8 carat round diamond?

Carat is a measure of weight, and may correspond roughly to the diameter of the stone, but not perfectly. Depending on the quality of the diamond, it might be cut a little deeper which could result in a smaller diameter. It may also be cut a little shallower, which would make it have a larger diameter. A stone that is cut to ideal proportions will always have more brilliance than a stone that is cut a little too deep or a little too shallow, both of which are undesirable. A 1.75 carat Round Diamond with excellent proportions should measure 7.8 MM at the girdle. Finally, how a stone is set can affect it's appearance.
