 Thanks for helping to reject "ten hundred". Actually, the number is the length of route in meters to pass in a specified direction. Thanks to everyone who has helped2 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer

ten o'clock left

Explanation:
I haven't heard of the clock system being used for road vehicles but it is commonly used for aircraft, usually in combination with a height indication, as in the film "Twelve O'Clock High", where the title means a direction to the pilot that there is something (in this case an enemy aircraft) directly ahead of and above him. Ten o'clock would be sixty degrees to the left, so the word "left" should not be necessary. Ten o'clock is often written as 1000 or 10.00, and could be said as ten hundred, not one thousand; but "ten o'clock" is the accepted form.
