Write ${10} instead of $10, ${11} instead of $11, etc,

I am not sure about ksh, but as far as bash is concerned, the single quotes DO NOT allow shell interpretation. That is to say, whatever is inside single quotes will be inserted into your database as a fixed string.
If you want to insert the values of your variables, you should consider hergp's suggestion or use doble quotes as in the following example:
Code:
insert into dbinfo.test1(c1,c2,c3,c4,c5,c6,c7,c8,c9,c10,c11) values ("$1",sysdate,"$3","$4","$5","$6","$7","$8","$9","$10","$11");

Hope it helps. Let us know if you need further help.

That is only the case if the here-document delimiter is quoted.
Code:
$ X=1
$ cat << !
> '$X'
> !
1

$ cat << "!"
> '$X'
> !
'$X'
