even though "has" is a literal translation, english speakers are more likely to say "a meter is ten decimeters"

The SI prefix deci is one of the least commonly used prefixes in the entire SI system and it transcends language. I believe the Swedes use deciliters a bit in cooking...

In Sweden both decimeters and deciliters are quite commonly used units, actually. And also hectograms (we usually shorten it to ”hekto”) as a unit in grocery stores, for pricing of some items such as candy or tea in loose weight (a trick to make it seem cheaper...)
