screenSize & smallestScreenSize attributes are not available in SDK 10.They are been introduced in API level 13.

Answer:

  • Make sure you have the latest copy of the Android SDK and that you’re
    compiling against at least Android v3.2 (set target in
    project.properties to android-13).
  • The Google Mobile Ads SDK for Android requires a run-time of Android 2.3 or later (set
    android:minSdkVersion to at least 9 in your AndroidManifest.xml).
    This means you can develop with the latest version of the Android SDK
    and your app will still run on an earlier Android version (2.3
    minimum).
