Will this setup work?

So I plan on getting this: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0051156TS/ref ... AQ498S1043

But it requires 12v, and my pack provides 5v. So I found a USB voltage stepper:

Will this work?

Depends on how much power the screen draws.
From the specs on the page, it looks like it'll be fine, as long as your pack provides enough power.

If you do a search, you will find that people have been able to make a few solders and run these small backup camera screens on 5 volts. Several of them have a 5v regulator in them. I've done that with the 4.3 screen and it works just fine. Here's one:
