If you are talking about the present/future, "I'm available in 10 minutes" would sound most natural. Hope that is useful :)

Especially pay attention to /ə/ ( schwa ) sound while listening to the pronunciation of the word to understand the difference.

I don't speak German but, to me, schwa sounds just like 'e' letter at the end of German word 'arbeiten'.
