No, that's not true.

10 users should be easily handled by a single image.

It is easier with Apache 2, but it works with any other web server as
well. What you have to do in this case is to set server-name and port
in the Seaside configuration, so that Seaside can properly generate
absolute URLs.

Yes, that's no problem.

Depending on the amount of concurrent users you might want to add more
VMs and do some load-balancing. This should not be necessary for 10
users though.
