10A meens 10ampere.

It is not that easy .. 10Amps (current rating)is written on a fuse that is not a fuse as 240V is written

I suspect it is a capacitor ,but still cant figure out wht is the use ..google is also not giving any hint of usage of capacitor with iron.

That is the rotary temp regulator (adjustable thermostat) with the contacts rated at 10A/240V. It is an electro-mechanical device and should be available readily.
