You could try something like this:

a = 17; b = -48; c = 31;
alpha = (ArcTan[b/(a - c)])/2;
axes = Graphics[Point[{0, 0}], PlotRange -> {{-12, 12}, {-12, 12}},
   Axes -> True,
   AxesStyle -> {Directive[{Red, Thin}], Directive[{Black, Thin}]},
   AxesLabel -> {"'x", "'y"}, AspectRatio -> 1, ImageSize -> 500];

ContourPlot[
 17*x^2 - 48*x*y + 31*y^2 + 49 == 0, {x, -12, 12}, {y, -12, 12},
 AspectRatio -> 1, Axes -> True,
 AxesStyle -> {Directive[{Red, Thin}], Directive[{Black, Thin}]},
 AxesLabel -> {"X", "Y"}, Background -> LightGray, ImageSize -> 500,
 Prolog -> Inset[axes, {Axis, Axis}, {Axis, Axis}, Automatic,
   RotationMatrix[-alpha]]]
