I'm not sure if this is a question on splitting a list of urls in groups
of 10, or about not typing the domain for each url (paste command
doesn't work?).

Assuming you are using a unix-like shell, you can use:
 wget http://example.org/path/{file1,file2,subfolder/file3,file4}
and that will expand being equivalent to:
 wget http://example.org/path/file1 http://example.org/path/file2
http://example.org/path/subfolder/file3 http://example.org/path/file4
