If you make all as 10gb each, they will compact immediately into same size

The idea is actually to trigger the compaction so the tombstones will be
removed. That's the whole purpose of the split. and if the split sstable
has lots of tombstones, it'll be compacted to a much smaller size.
Also, you can always play with the compaction threshold to suit your needs.
