Theoretically those:

~xmin (float, default: -100.0)
Initial map size
~ymin (float, default: -100.0)
Initial map size
~xmax (float, default: 100.0)
Initial map size
~ymax (float, default: 100.0)
Initial map size
~delta (float, default: 0.05)
Processing parameters (resolution of the map)

However, 10x10 is a VERY small map with a VERY rough solution. This sounds really odd. Especially with a resolution of let's say 0.5m (guessed robot size) you will get localization accuarcy at best in this magnitude which is not preferable.

You need to set them differently of course. These are just the defaults.

ok so I I want 10x10 cell I have to modify this way?:

xmax=10; ymax=10; xmin=-10 ymin=10;

That depends how large the cells are. The min/max values are in meters.

my robot is 1m big. I want to have my robot smaller than the cells

The cell size is called delta here.

is it delta in meters?
