[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica; see the references at Photius kappa610 Theodoridis. The headword is present indicative, third person singular, of the verb kermati/zw. It must be quoted from somewhere -- perhaps Plotinus, Enneads 6.2.2.
[2] Apparently the genitive plural of the present participle of a verb katakermatia/w or katakermatio/w, meaning "lie in pieces"; otherwise unattested.
[3] Iamblichus, Babyloniaca fr.19 Habrich; also at kappa 1441 and more fully at sigma 673. (It does not, apparently, include the participle just cited.)
[4] Not glossed here. but see e.g. Hesychius kappa1157.
[5] Aelian fr. 84f Domingo-Forasté (part of 81 Hercher). Again, it does not illustrate the exact word just given but another form
