min but ProxyTimeout=10 min in a Reverse Proxy Server, if the backend response is over 10
min, when the connection will be closed, 5 min or 10 min?

The timeouts apply to single network operation, there is no end-to-end
timer running.

If Apache has to wait 10 minutes for a single read from the origin
server to complete, it will timeout.  An error response will be sent
to the client, if he hasn't closed his own end of the connection by
