How much is 10,000 talents?

A talent was equal to 6000 denarii.

The average Jewish laborer worked 6 days and 50 weeks of the year, when you take away the sabbaths and 2 weeks of Jewish holidays.

They earned about 1 denarii a day, so that is about 6 days x 50 weeks which means he earned an annual wage of about 300 denarii.

So to earn 1 talent (which is about 6000 denarii) you must work about 20 years of labor. 300 denarii x 20 years =6,000 denarii.

To pay all 10,000 talents, he would need to work about 20 years x 10,000 talents = 200,000 years or 60 million working days (6000 denarii X 10000 talents).
