It sounds like you just have the cumulative update package there. Download and install a trial version of Exchange which is valid for 180 days -

Then install cu10 -

Install guide -

Note the AD prep can be done before hand which would be better for experience OR the install will go this for you

yes, that is correct
the CU update is actually the full version patched to that point so you can use it in a fresh install to test with.  no need to download a previous version then update to CU10.  I setup a lab environment a few weeks ago with the CU9 install and went well
