Hm, would it be possible to do a binary search and find the target at which
you start getting consistent plans? Perhaps the default of 10 is simply way
too small and should be raised? 

Obviously this would depend on the data model, but I suspect if your aim is
for the benchmark data to be representative of typical data models, which
scares me into thinking perhaps users are seeing similarly unpredictably
variable performance.
