    I would choose a microcontroller with an SPI interface and use 10 MAX3100 UARTS. I have a design that uses three of them, and I see no reason why 10 would be out of the question.

    Use a small FPGA + Your target MCU (or you can put your MCU in fpga)
    Using FPGA, you can have more than 20 UART interface :)

    You'd have to either design or purchase a suitable UART core. This might not be everyones cup of tea.
