    とおか = 十日 = 10 days
    とうか = 透過 ・ 投下 etc. = penetrate/permeate ・ throw down/drop

    とおく = 遠く = far
    おおきい = 大きい = big
    こおり = 氷 = ice
    こうり = 小売 = retailing
    とおった = 通った = pass/go through
    おおさか = 大阪 = Osaka (name of a city)

    you mean "10 day", right?
    then the former is correct.
