Hello Marcel,

maybe this is a typo in your post, or maybe not, but did you notice that in 
the code you provide you request a window of size 10x10 and not 20x20 ?

Also you don't tell us the kind of application you're working on, but you 
should know that the module Graphics is just for minimal purposes, for example 
for short example when you just need a quick/minimal plotting solution.

For more advanced usage you should use the SDL bindings:
http://ocamlsdl.sourceforge.net/
