Not knowing exactly what your intend to use is so it makes it hard to make a recommendation but in general I would not suggest getting anything less than a 14” saw. In my opinion you might be better of with your jig saw than a 10” band saw.
The measurement on band saws is related to the depth of the cut between the blade and the back of the saw. The height or thickness of the cut in not usually stated. For example my 17” saw is actually 16.25 deep and 12” high.

Here is one of the best videos on setting up a bandsaw I have seen:
