No, that means that although you THINK you have 4 ohm speakers, you don't. You could call them "5 ohm" just as easily. You're not trying to drive a resistor (at least I hope not!), you're trying to drive a loudspeaker, a complex and tremendously variable load. Bottom line: don't sweat the difference between 4 and 5 ohm.

I'm sure a net search (or even a search of diyAudio.com) will yield a 5-20 schematic. If not, the Mullard tube book has been reprinted, available through AudioXpress. And I think it's also reprinted in Morgan Jone's "Valve Amplifiers", which is a book you ought to have anyway.
