boy 10x10 is tight (10x12 is better) ....you could save room if the amps are small or if you have a central PA that everyone plugs into. I probably would recommend reducing the trap setup just for rehearsals. I know it's you pad but if it's jazz then you really don't need much. They actually make a device that let's you use a floor tom as a bass drum. I played with some pretty heavy players and we had a micro stage.. it worked nicely.
The biggest problem I see besides the volume is damage to the instruments.
If you can sound Taps please take a few minutes and check out this site.

It ended up being 10 x 12, but it's still just the size of a small bedroom inside. Open floor space is what I'm shooting for ....... A finely fitted and perfectly sized desk is the first thing I'm looking for ... It's an office too so the desk needs to hold Computer, Monitor/TV, Recording device (prob TASCAM digital 8 track unit), monitor speakers, and just about anything else that needs a spot. My signed snapshot of that famous race (where the turtle beats the hare) goes on the desk.
Tiny futon couch, small refrigerator that my Vox amp will sit on top of ..... a few chairs and stools, guitar stands and that's about it. Oh yeah, posters of inspirational people (Alison Balsam, Jennifer Aniston, the girl in whipped cream on Herb Alpert's album cover, etc), but they don't take up much room.
No animals or smooth jazz musicians will be allowed, so that should save some space.
When I was a young high school student that album was removed from my collection by my over conservative Mom. She did not realize the insides were not as racy as the cover!!!!
