You could have pasted the relevant parts right into your email.
This was the only relevant section I could find in your output:
cpu.1: cpuinfo
----- /proc/cpuinfo -----
  processor	: 0
  model name	: ARMv7 Processor rev 2 (v7l)

ARMv7 is the architecture. I did not find "A7" in a relevant context in
your output.

Have a look at:
'A13 Specifications Brief (Allwinner states R8 is a "1GHz A13 Compatible
SoC (System on Chip)"'
