How about pre-focusing, switching the lens to Manual focus, and then taking the shot? I think that's how I did it when I took my own passport pictures.

alternatively, the OP could put some object where he will be standing/sitting to pre-focus ... then run over and replace the object with himself during the 10s timer ...

in the future, an IR remote works wonders and is really really inexpensive ...
the official $20 canon IR remote

the cheaper $10 3rd party remote

hope this helps ...
