With the 10/12w charging bricks coming with the new mini’s. Does this mean the new mini doesn’t support fast charging?

Apple.com says it is compatible with the 30w adapter. Not 100% sure that means it utilizes fast charge. You will need to purchase a usb c to lightning cable.

I also got a 10W charger with my Mini 5 in the UK. Wonder if it’s some kind of European rule while America gets the 12W.

US here: I assumed that I got a 10 Watt charger but I just realized that the 10 Watt looks the same as the 12 Watt. I didn't check the label. I gave the charger to my wife for her iPhone. I have a 60-Watt charger in the office (6 ports and 12 Watts Max per port), a 40-Watt charger in my home office (5 ports and 10 Watts Max per port), and a 10-Watt charger on the night stand. 10 or 12 Watts gets the job done.

I'm using the iPhone 7+ and the iPad Mini 5 and so one, the other or both are always on the charger. So there's always a device that is fully or almost fully charged.

Yes, he supports it. Today I checked with 30 watts from the Apple - 66% in 60 minutes .
With standard 12 watts from the Apple - 42% in 60 minutes. ( Charged with "airplane mode" ON.)

Good to know that the Mini can be charged faster.

Yes, but I did not understand why when charging from Xiaomi Mi Power Bank 2S, the result was the same as from 12 Watt Apple. Xiaomi Mi Power Bank Compatible with 5V / 2A, 9V / 2A, and 12V / 1.5A charging.It is important to me, I use it when traveling.
