Basically what Jopop said.

Setting your amps FX level to +4 dB means your amp is expecting your FXs to be functioning at a +4 dB signal level ( rack gear level ). Your pedals are -10dB, so start the knob there first.

Assuming you are using the series loop, adjust the level knob on the amps fx loop until the volume remains the same no matter if the FX loop is on or off. The final level you use depends on your pedal settings as well, so go with what sounds right to your ears. You might need to tweek the output setting on the pedals as well until you find a tone you like. It's a balancing act really.

Having that FX loop level knob is a freaking nice feature btw. Most amps are lucky just to have a level switch.
