   What is process 10?

It's the idle process.

   Is this literally a representation of the CPU idle time
   accumulation for the 85 hours since boot?

Yes.

   Despite the enormous time burn on 'idle' it does not show on
   'top'.

Yes, that didn't seem to make sense.

Yes.

That's probably because top(1) hides stuff from you by default.   Try using 
top -S.
