If you delete the lmdb folder and re-sync you will be in the same position. Just use the version (0.9.70) of mdb_stat that's in the Monero source tree (monero/external/db_drivers/liblmdb).
Also note, the python module version number (0.98) is not the lmdb version number. The python module you reference actually uses lmdb version 0.9.24. Therefore, if you need to use the python wrapper, you're going to have to build that first with the correct version of lmdb as used in Monero (0.9.70).
To use the LMDB library included in the Monero source code, uninstall your currently installed python lmdb module and reinstall following steps like:
pip install lmdb
Which ensures the version of LMDB the python module uses is the same version as used by Monero.
