The above tokenises to the same as

    font: 10px/2 Times;

...and is therefore identical.

Specifically, it is equivalent to:

   font-size: 10px;
   line-height: 2;
   font-family: Times;
   font-weight: normal;
   font-variant: normal;
   font-style: normal;
   font-size-adjust: none;

Similarly, all of:

   font: medium A  B;

   font: medium A B;

   font: medium A

...are exactly equivalent for the same reason.
