Per Microsoft a domain user can join 10 computers to the domain.
I wonder if I had 20 domain users. would each of them be able to join 10 computers to the domain?

Thanks

If you want to prevent them of adding workstations to the domain (to secure your environment), you can modify Deafult Domain Controller policy.
Under Computer Configuration -> Policies -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Local Policies -> User Rights Assignment
from "Add workstations to domain" policy, you can remove "Authenticated Users" group. Then regular users won't be able to add any workstation to the domain

Krzysztof
