This looks like a failed attempt to create a usable scale. If I
may guess: the range will be 9.5k to 10.4k but rrdtool does not
display tenths.

This would mean the actual numbers are approximately 10195 and 9890.

There is no information in the legend, so I cannot know what you
expect and why the displayed graph would be wrong apart from the
Y-axis label, which is indeed unfortunate.

Try explaining what you mean by this.  It makes no sense.
