If it's always an ordinal number on x axis and you want 1:10 as the xaxis limits whatever the number in the plot vector use xlim() to set the limits.
plot(rand(5,1)) xlim([1 10])
If the xaxis values are something other than ordinal use appropriate limits. Can also set the 'xtick' property specifically.
