Hello & welcome, Michael !

CHDK RAW is not a real image "format", a CHDK RAW image is a simple, unprocessed sensor data dump.
Some applications already can read the CHDK RAW files, e.g. RawTherapee, XNView, IrfanView, Google Picasa, Gimp with the UFRAW Plugin, also more DCRAW-based software.

You can enabled the CHDK DNG support, the DNG format is supported by most applications --> guidance
You can also convert the RAW files to the DNG format with DNG4PS-2...

Some links for you:
