8x10 crop lines on a focus screen

Is there such a thing? Since a digital image is not what you print, do they make a focus screen that will show you what the print area is going to be?

Yup. For $45 Katz will include 8x10 crop lines on your split screen, but its just an aspect ratio to work with since as you say its not really the print size.

KatzEye will do gridlines for 8x10, 5x7 and "Portrait" which is a combo of both. I almost went with the "portrait" ones when I ordered mine but at the last minute went with no grid lines at all. And I'm glad; having a completely clear view screen is nice.
