A milligram (mg) is a measure of mass. A millilter (mL) is a measure of volume. The translation between mass and volume is given by the density of the substance. For a substance such as water, with a density near 1 mg/mL over a wide range of temperatures and pressures, 10 mg is about 10 mL.

Actually, the density of water is 1 g/mL, so 10 mg would be 0.01 mL, a small fraction of one drop of usual size. This sort of question often arises in relation to medicine or other substances that are in solution. The concentration in solution (mg/mL) gives the necessary translation factor.
