Can a 10mm T+E take an induction hob of 6.4kw and a double oven 5.1kw?

Yes, so can 4 sq.mm. Method C with 32A MCB.

10 sq.mm is a sub-main for a flat.

well, what size breaker is upstream of it, and what thermal insulation are you routing it through.
However unless it is extreme, almost certainly yes because Thermostatic controls conspire to keep turning ovens and cookers on and off after the first few minutes so the actual cable heating is much reduced over what you may imagine from the ratings. This is reflected in the advice alluded to above, which has many years pedigree..

I work it out at 22A after diversity (presuming no socket outlet on the cooker control unit) - so at a push a 25A MCB and 2.5mm2 might suffice.

For balance to the OP , cable routing must truly be method C to hedge your bets on <10mm. Insulation is everywhere is present build techniques. Downstairs kitchen, cable through joists and ceiling stuffed with insulation?
