I am using express edition of SQL 2008 R2. As per the microsoft sites we can have max DB size as 10GB. But in my sql server DB property page shows current size as 15GB.
I dont know how this is possible. Do you have any idea?

That includes the Log size I think.

To check the size of the data and log files check -

select db_name(database_id) as dbname,
type_desc,(size * 8) /1024 as size_MB,
(size * 8) /1024/1024 as size_GB
from sys.master_files order by name
