I am currently testing my application on my Q10 and am relatively new to the BB10 platform both as a developer and as a user. I was just wondering, since the Q10 has limited real estate compared to the Z10, do BB10 user's expect there to be a back button at the bottom of each page? Or do most of them know they can flick the page toward the right to go back?
I'd honestly rather not have the back button getting in the way for obvious reasons, what's better, back button or none at all?

As a programmer, NEVER assume the user knows how to do something, no matter how obvious or trivial it is. In your case, 99.9999% of the time they'll know to try to flick right, but they'll always be those users who don't. However, if you're really keen on removing the back button, explain how to return somewhere on your help page.
It's up to you and the experience you want to give.
