Well the fact that most people don't actually say 9x19mm. They say 9mm, or a 10mm cause it's easy and it's automatically a handgun round because of the context. It's the same with rifle caliber where we say 5.56mm. I mean if you are going with numbers just comparing the first number of course the number 5 is smaller than 10. A lot of time, people forget about the second number that comes after the X.

In Aliens, they don't call it just a machine gun or even a smg. They called it a "rifle" so we could assume it's rifle caliber and 10mm is big, but since it's caseless, it shouldn't be a problem. Not to mention the 20mm pump action grenade launcher with grenades that can deliver a hell of a bang
