TitaniumBackup pro has an 'extract from nandroid backup' feature – ce4 Aug 13 '12 at 20:57

If you had contact sync enabled and you added the account on this rom too your contacts should appear. If they don't, try Titanium Backup Pro. It's a terrific backup solution and it's pro version allows you to restore individual items from CWM backups.
It costs more than your average app but it's super well worth it.
