Originally, there was no limit to the number of years one person could be president.

Article 2: Executive Branch

Franklin D. Roosevelt was the only president to serve more than 2 terms. He was elected for his fourth term, but died before completing it. He served as president for just over 12 years.

22nd amendment

No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once. But this article shall not apply to any person holding the office of President when this article was proposed by the Congress, and shall not prevent any person who may be holding the office of President, or acting as President, during the term within which this article becomes operative from holding the office of President or acting as President during the remainder of such term.

22nd Amendment

Term limit: 2 terms (8 years) and no more

than 10 years total.

But how could someone serve for 10 years then?

22nd amendment1

No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once. But this article shall not apply to any person holding the office of President when this article was proposed by the Congress, and shall not prevent any person who may be holding the office of President, or acting as President, during the term within which this article becomes operative from holding the office of President or acting as President during the remainder of such term.

22nd Amendment

But how could someone serve for 10 years then?

If the Vice President has to take over because the President dies, is impeached, or resigns, then he can serve an additional two years.

So 2 + 4 + 4 = 10 years total.
