You should have a licensed electrician connect this unit for you.
That being said you need to supply 240v to the unit. You will need a true two pole breaker. (not a split or a twin) There should be two screws or lugs and two slots or clamps on the bus side. These slots must span both phases of your panel. You can measure the voltage across the two screws if you are uncertain, it should read 240v.
Next connect a piece of 12/2 wire to the two screws. Use the black and the white. Land the bare copper wire on the ground bus in the panel.
Then at the unit, land the bare ground to the ground screw and connect your 12/2 to the wires in the unit. You may find the wire nutted together. This is normal, and allows "feeding" the unit from either side. If you are unsure measure the voltage here also, across the white and the black. It should be about 240v.

you get 120V from any phase (black OR red) to neutral
you get 240V from phase to phase (between black and red) and in this scenario you don't need the white wire.
So for you, connect the black to 1 pole of the breaker and the red to the other pole, connect the green wire to the ground strip and you are done.
A white wire is NEVER connected to a circuit breaker anyway, it is a grounded wire, it would be like connecting a green wire to a black wire, bad idea.
the National electrical code specifies red and black wire color for 240VAC circuits.
As Ask Hank mentionned, nothing wrong with 10/3 wire.

one set goes to your heater,,,,
the other set is either your voltage in, or your t-stat will control 2 units
