That means that only 10 people have installed WhatsApp on their phones. They can own a phone number, but they may have no WhatsApp account: that is why you see only a few people.

To invite more people, tap on "All" and select the contact you wish to invite to WhatsApp. Tap "More" and then tap "invite to WhatsApp".
