No -- it means that your clone had written approximately 10GB of space
within the image before you created the first snapshot. If the
"fast-diff" feature is enabled, note that it only calculates usage in
object size chunks (defaults to 4MB) -- which means that even writing
1 byte to a 4MB object would flag the object as dirty (it's an
upper-bound estimate).
