The main problem you have is 10 speed mtb shifters pull a lot more cable (3.4mm) to move the RD less distance than traditional 9 speed shifters (2.5mm) pull to move the RD more. Alternate cabling...

There won’t be an issue as long as they are both V-1.

Absolutely correct. Running an old 6/7 speed wide cage RD with a 10 speed system is probably not a good thing. Likewise, RD travel might be an issue.
