I work with Revit MEP but let see if I can help you.

First I would say create a filter for your stairs

CreationFilter cf = app.Create.Filter;
Filter f1 = cf.NewCategoryFilter(bic);

Next create a List to store the returned stair elements

List<Element> Stairs = new List<Element>();

Then call the active document to get the stairs

Document doc = commandData.Application.ActiveDocument

doc.get_elements(f1, Stairs );

Now you can parse through all of the elements returned for your parameters

Foreach (Element stair in Stairs)
foreach (Parameter param in stair.Parameters)
string name = param.Definition.Name;
string value = param.AsValueString

Hope this helps
