It'd be 10.  Though its been ages, I'm pretty sure you have to start 
the count after the movement, not combine it.

(The way movement was integrated into RQ strike ranks, especially 
RQ3, was the single most annoying thing about it from a GM point of 
view as you had to keep track of this penalty for all the damn 
movement from all the NPCs, which could be a nightmare.)
