Gutentite :)

I admit that I don't look up torque values for anything other than rod, case and cylinder head bolts.

I would guess 20lbs for a 10mm bolt is safe.

+1 thighten the piss out of it, id tighten them as tight as you can with the allen; you definitely wouldnt want them to come loose!
I hope your joking. Things have torque specs for reason. Buy a torque wrench and do it right. Doing what you say, is how things get stripped and rounded off if done repeatedly. It does not take much torque for those clamps to hold on to the tubes.

Clamping forces are certainly stronger than you would think. But if you don't have a torque wrench, you can alternate tightening until their both snug, and then give them another 1/4-to-1/2 turn.

You can certainly crush things as well, if you're not careful.
