The Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-2 that you referenced should be the correct size to replace your hydraulic brakes for your 10" wheels. You can quickly verify this by measuring the diameter of your current brakes.

You should be able to use the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # AKHD-545-2-1K but you need to verify that the # L44649 inner and outer bearings match what you currently have as well as the 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern.

You also need a 7-Way connector on your trailer like the Epicord # 277-000141 as well as 10 Gauge Wire # 10-1-1, and a Breakaway Kit # 20099.

I have attached a helpful article that goes over what all is needed to use electric brakes on a trailer.
