I want to plot a sphere with r=1 that is divided into element of 10 degree in azimuth and elevation angle.

Use the sphere command.
There's also the related sph2cart for converting azimuth, elevation and radius to x,y,z.

the sphere command does not cut the sphere to the dimensions I want

You can use sphere to split it into n number of equal parts. So if you want every 10 degrees, thats 360/10=36. For example:
[x,y,z] = sphere(36);
[az,el,r] = cart2sph(x,y,z);
az = rad2deg(az);
az(2,:)
