I verified with the OSMAND Google group.

The limit of 10 is only when downloading directly through the OSMAND software.

If you download manually as it is done for Philippines, you dont have this limit limit of 10

Regarding OsmAnd:

The download limit is in the free version on Google Play to encourage 
users to upgrade to the paid version and so to support development.

Since OsmAnd is open source a custom build would not have this limit. 
Such a custom build can be found at 
Installing F-Droid itself could also be beneficial, from their site: 
"F-Droid is an installable catalogue of FOSS (Free and Open Source 
Software) applications for the Android platform. The client makes it 
easy to browse, install, and keep track of updates on your device."

If you use the F-Droid build of OsmAnd I suggest donating to the OsmAnd 
project to support development. (Please note that I'm neither involved 
in F-Droid nor in OsmAnd.)
