No, there is no support for such a big resolution.
The way to achieve this is by tiling the image and render it piece by piece. For example if you have a resolution of 1024*768, then you could get your 10000*10000 sized image by rendering 200 pieces, each sized 1000*500.

If you have access to the Game Programming Gems 2 book, there is a good article by Vlachos and Hart on how to do this. It's called "Rendering Print Resolution Screenshots."
