My ear tells me:

"Let's begin on [not "at" or "from"] page 10."

"Let's begin at [not "on," but "from" is acceptable] the key change, measure 152." (directions to a musical ensemble)

"Let's begin from ["at" OK, "on" not OK] the scene where she kisses him for the first time." (theater)

"on page 10" sounds best to me.

Why not "Let's begin with page 10"?

"Let's begin with page 10"?

Let's begin doing what with page 10?

If you mean, "Let's begin reading on page 10," then you mean, "Let's begin on page 10." If you mean, "Let's begin tearing pages out of the book," then I suppose you can say, "Let's begin with page 10."
