I migrated/upgrade one of my SP 2007 databases to SP 2010 using the database attach method. I had no errors during the upgrade process but the size of the database grew from 10gb to 17gb - is it normal?

The size of the database or the size of the log? Of the log is rather normal as quite some changes have been made to the database.

Database itself. I didn't migrate the log. I actually detached the 2007 database and attached it to a new instance without a log and upgraded it (new log was created).

I confirmed elsewhere that this is a normal behavior.
