When in some question it is mentioned that

10n = something

should we consider the given value is 10 * n or '10n' written

Ex if n = 6, is it 60, or 106

I have seen it getting used as either in the material..

They specify it clearly in the question:
If the question doesn't say anything, 10n means 10*n. In case they mean to say that n is the unit's digit of a 3 digit number, it will say so. e.g. given a three digit number 10n such that n is a digit...

If you are doing a problem on the digits of a number, then 10n may be a three digit number and that will be written explicitly.
In other cases, you can safely take 10n as 10*n.
