What is the maximum I/O source current per bit for the PCA9698?

I would like to use the GPIO expander for I2C bus PCA9698, but I have some limitations of power. At the beginning of the datasheet, it says that at 5 V supply voltage, the outputs are capable of sourcing 10 mA and sinking 25 mA with a total package load of 1 A. Does this mean that the maximum current that can source is 10 mA at 5V supply voltage? Because at the end of the document, appear a graphic that indicates to me that the maximum output source current is greater than 10 mA in some conditions.
