1Really? Think about what airlines go there. The lounges must be amazing.. I've been to the Bahrain business lounge and was amazed... Emirates, Ethiad...etc...they must be better.

2No matter how amazing the lounges are (I've not been in any paid lounges, only in the Emirates business class lounge which is nice) 10 hours is a long time. Have you considered leaving the airport and sleeping in a hotel nearby? The Premier Inn is cheap (for Dubai) and right beside the airport.
This is probably only worth considering if you are eligible for a free visa on arrival.

4It's a personal choice, for me spending all that time in an airport would be hell and I just wouldn't do it if there was an option.
To pass some time you could go out and do a taxi tour of some of the places of interest, at least that way you'll see something of the city - again, if you get a VOA but you don't say what passport you have so I can't advise on that.
