The man page for tmpfiles.d says, of the age field:
"The age field only applies to lines starting with d, D, and x."
So, the line:
d /chenqiang/test_10s 0660 root root 10s
indicates that systemd-tmpfiles should create the directory
/chenqiang/test_10s, owned by root/root with mode 0660, and periodically
clean it of files and empty directories more than 10s old.
Note that the default configuration runs systemd-tmpfiles once per day,
so specifying time periods much smaller than that may not be useful.
