Understanding API Requests in Sanity.io: One request per query, regardless of the number of items.

How do API Requests work? If I query 10 items, is that classed at 1 API Request or 10? Or is is more about how much data is returned? My sanity API Requests seem very high for what I am doing.
For example this query:

*[_type == "post"]
{ 
    title,
    description,
    colour,
    mainImage{
      asset,
      alt,
      "lqip": asset->metadata.lqip,
    },
  },
}

Each query is a request, no matter what it includes, so your query of 10 items would be one API request (as would the example you posted).
