If you have the Cesena is normal that you receive the Speed Warning under 10,000ft at 175kts, that speed is too much for a little plane like Cessna! ;)
Stay at 120kts or under when you apre under 10,000ft ;)

In the HUD view you will see dots along the speed indicator that show where the warning begins. It varies with each aircraft based on size.

This is NOT the same as the speed rule under FL100. That is a standard 250kts airspeed regardless of size under FL100.

MaxSez: check the book; FAR 91.117 a: "Unless otherwise authorized by the Administrator, no person may operate an aircraft below 10,000 feet MSL at an indicated airspeed of more than 250 knots (288 m.p.h). (Within the 12 mile limit)

(The 172 violation is based on Airftame Limitations not FAA regs. Watch for the Red dots on the Speed tape. The first Dot indicates the airworthiness airframe limit per aircraft type (See Archive) which will activate an aural & text master warning.)

In certain aircraft I find that I get an overspeed warning even though I am above 10k resulting in a violation. This is probably added with the overspeed warning

Yes please see max’s post above. At any altitude you can receive a warning that you are exceeding airframe limitations due to speed.
