Those are not polarised.

I've used some resin-cased axial lead ceramic capacitors which are 
about the same size and which I would be very surprised if they 
wouldn't fit.

Incidentlly, if you are fitting IC sockets do fit the turned pin (machined
pin) ones. They cost a bit more now, but will save you endless headaches
from bad contacts in the future.
