If an ideal is 16.8 cm, or 6 5/8 inch, each frame will yield approx. 1.3 to 1.6 kg. 3 to 3.5 US pound.
I think It's more related to weight, an 8 frame super full of honey is heavy and unwieldy. I suspect a 10 frame would be even more so. It's easier to start with 8 frame gear now than change from 10 to 8 later when you find you can't lift a full 10 frame super any more
