If with RM 10,000 and length of contract is 1 year. Which visa will be get?

Category I would be applicable. But there is also the Professional Visit Pass which is only for 1 year. The PVP however means the employee remains on a contract of employment in another country and is not paid a salary in Malaysia, hence no income tax liability in Malaysia.

Sorry but finally it is will be EP categoty I or PVP for 1 year ? Thanks @Gravitas

Depends what you have negotiated. Also where salary will be paid (just updated my previous post to make this clearer).
