Maybe the suburbs aren't counted or something, so Chengdu, Wuhan and Shenzhen don't make it. But Chongqing definitely has less than 10 million people.

A megacity almost by definition includes suburbs. It is the urban conglomeration, not the official city limits. So Chongqing should definitely be included.

It's similar across Southeast Asia - big national populations, but mostly relatively small cities. With a quarter of a billion people, Indonesia should at least have a second. The difference in population between Bangkok and Thailand's next largest city is phenomenal. In general Southeast Asian populations seem to be more widely spread than in other parts of Asia.

I wouldn't call Germany spread out. It is a very dense country, with a huge population for its size. The real reason why it isn't on here is that they don't have one big city that's much more important than the others, like London for the UK or Paris for France. Instead, they have five or six urban areas that are about the same size: Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Frankfurt, Cologne and the Ruhr (the latter two being sometimes counted together). They're big, but they have less than 10 million people.
