Question baseboard install question

Hypotheticaly. I have 10x10 room with a heat loss of 6600 btu/hour. For sake of example, I have two walls exterior with large windows. let's now say I have a baseboard radiator that gives off 220 btu/hour/foot. I need 30 feet of it. Since I only have two 10ft exterior walls, will it be ok for me to run the second 10 feet along an interior wall, or should I try and keep the heat make up along the exterior wall only. (to make a convection current "blanket" across the glass in those walls).

Would I be better off getting a baseboard radiator with a higher btu/hour/ft output?

In my case, I am trying to get a lower profile baseboard radiator, but it gives off lower btu.

NE1 use slimline baseboard from AIM?

I haven't used the slimline. You surely can make up some of the heat in the room on an inside wall. Especially if you already filled the outside wall. You will never know the difference.
