No 10% is not the maximum limit, it purely depends upon the performance of the employee. Sometimes during negotiation(at the time of final selection) we negotiate so that once the employee had performed the salary can be revised then.
Though the practice in most companies is somewhere between 7 to 15% but every company can devise their own policy for this matter.

No human being in the world is satisfied or can be satisfied. His/her wants are unlimited.
We need to consider the worth of service he/she is provided to the company and on that basis company will provide benefits to retain the best talent. Always analyze return on investment made on employees.
You need to discuss with him about his expectation and find solution to this situation. You will have a better and clear picture.

Without complete information about the employee like his designation, no. of years of experience, qualifications it would not be fair on our part to comment on the given salary...
# also I'm sure he must have joined on higher salary than past in your company, you can look at the total percentage and convince him.
# when salary structure is finalized a general tendency is to have the figures comparative to market, so that you won't loose your best talents to competitor.
# Otherwise 10% hike is good enough after probation and as Abedeen mentioned measuring ROI is very important.

The hike on confirmation depends on what is the general salary level I your company for such employees and whether the salary he joined on is considered low.
We have given as much as 40% hike on confirmation to hard working and good employes, but they started with lower salaries.
You need to check out what competitors are paying.

What is the company policy ? Have there been any earlier practice ?
What has been the level of contribution to the organisation during this period ?
Will the amount retain him till the next raise ?
May be you'd like to discuss with your peers or with people he has worked with.
I feel that 10-15 % is a reasonable amount in terms of increase .
