i think '10 years' can be an alternative answer (what is the synonym of a decade?)

Not really since when you want to specifically say 10 years in Vietnamese you'd say "mười năm". A decade refers to the year bracket (90s, 2000s, 2010s)

Although a decade consists of ten years these terms are not always interchangable.
