Couldn’t it be I haven’t eaten since ten? Without “o’clock”?

That would follow the pattern that has been accepted so far. One year later, hoping this report makes it.

We normally require o'clock where there is hodin and vice versa.

Ah ok, I hadn't noticed it was also optional in Czech.

Can it mean "I haven't ate for 10 horus."?

No, "I haven't eaten for 10 hours." would be "Deset hodin jsem nejedla."
