    The words in -ella I'm thinking in are all of them with /e/, so I guess it must be /kuku'ɾeʎa/ in western dialects, /kuku'ɾeʎə/ in the eastern ones.

    Most are with /e/ indeed. So I'd say /kuku'ɾeʎə/ too.

    Very few common ones are with /ɛ/, at least in Central Catalan: cella, orella, ovella, abella...

    Yes, true; in "short" words with no masculine in -ell there are some.
