There is absolutely nothing wrong with Todd's fantastic amazing answer! But the ensuing comment thread seem to interject some potential confusion.
Let me make a couple of observations. A shorter scale guitar will require less tension to reach a given pitch. The guitar you mentioned has a scale approximately three full inches shorter than a "full scale" guitar. I am away from a guitar at the moment but I am guessing that might be equivalent to a capo on the 2nd fret (if not almost 3rd) fret of many full scale guitars.
So while it is likely that tuning a .10 steel string to a on a 25.5 inch scale guitar would snap the string, it is highly probable that you could get there on a 22.36" scale. Yes that would increase the tension and yes, too much tension can damage the guitar. But there is a limit to how much tension you can get from a .10 or .09 gauge string before it breaks. You could torque a .47 gauge string to a dangerously high tension before it would break, but that is not going to be happening in the scenario you describe.
Also of importance, the lighter the string gauge, the less tension required to reach a given pitch. So the combination of very light strings and a short scale guitar will very likely translate into a very floppy feeling set up - as you suggested. So I think your idea of a higher tuning in that scenario, makes perfect sense and may contribute to a better overall playing feel.
When a guitar manufacturer builds a particular guitar, someone will decide what gauge strings would be optimal for that guitar (assuming standard tuning). Then that guitar will be "set up" (hopefully) in the factory for the particular gauge strings the manufacturer "recommends". Sometimes, manufacturers change their mind as did Taylor Guitars with their acoustic 800 and up series. I would assume that when they changed the recommended string gauge, they altered the factory set up accordingly.
Radical departure from the gauge the guitar was set up for can result in significant problems including intonation, nut slots being too large, bridge height too low, or other issues. Slight departures (going from .010 to .009 for example) don't usually have a discernible effect.
Assuming the guitar you mentioned has been set up for the gauge strings they ship with it, you should be able to make some slight modifications to your string set without radically diminishing the play ability.
It is very important to maintain relatively consistent string tension for all strings for playing comfort. It is also important not to exert so much tension on the neck that the truss rod is unable to compensate. But the overall tension can be adjusted up or down and appropriate adjustments to the truss rod will maintain the proper and desired relief in the neck.
So let's look at what you are considering in another way. Below you will find a string gauge description for a heavy set and a .010 - .047 Extra Light Set.
These are two different gauge sets from same manufacturer and same type strings. I am sure most full scale guitars would be able to handle the higher tension of the heavier gauge. As you can see, the heavy set uses a .049 gauge for the A string. So no problem on a shorter scale (less tension required) to tune a .047 gauge to A. We also see that on the heavy gauge set, we can get a .014 gauge string to high e. Same gauge as on the 2nd string in the light gauge set. So again, even less tension on the short scale guitar to get the .014 gauge string to high e.
The only question not answered by the chart, is will the .010 string tune up to high A on the short scale guitar. We can see that the difference between B and e is either .018 to .014 OR .014 to .010 - either way a .04 difference. The shorter scale will make it easy to get to high a on a .010 and I would bet you could even get there with a .011 since the scale is equivalent to at least a 2nd fret capo already.
I am certain you won't have a problem tuning the .010 string to a on the short scale and the overall tension should be reasonably balanced, albeit higher than with standard tuning. As mentioned above, this higher tension is probably a potentially more comfortable tension on the short scale than the .010 to .047 set would provide.
If in the very unlikely event that the .010 string snaps before you get to high A, you can buy a single .09 gauge from Just Strings Single Strings Page
The biggest difference between strings for electric verses acoustic (aside from the metal composition being different to react to magnetic pickups) is that generally strings for electric can be lighter to accommodate string bending - since the volume is controlled by the electronics and amplification. It is common for electric sets to have a plain steel G (third) string instead of a wound G string.
Speaking of wound G strings, at the above mentioned site for single strings at Just Strings dot com, you can purchase acoustic wound G strings in a .018 gauge if you decide you want to construct a lower tension A - a tuning and still have a wound 3rd string.
I have not gone as far as Todd and tried a hands on experiment, but I have played with enough different string gauges on different scale length guitars, to confidently say that you should be just fine tuning up the guitar you mentioned with the strings they shipped which are probably the strings the guitar is set up for.
You will probably want to adjust the truss rod to compensate for the higher tension. But with the shorter scale, the effect on overall tension should not be beyond the adjustment range of the guitar's truss rod.
