Yes.

I assume when you say "quick-start" you just mean you want install 10 websites on one database. In that case as @sozzled says, yes, that's possible. The table prefix is what keeps the sites separate. However in an ideal world you'd use one database per site.

This allows you to create a cluster of Joomla sites using one common database.

Go to the official extension site, there is a detailed description. You can also ask a question to developer before using it, providing a description of your case. By the way, the developer proposes to do it first.
