I want to give these a try, but pretty limited on space. If I build a trellis that is 10 ft tall, 8 ft wide, with a 4x8 flat top, would I be able to grow one plant?

That's plenty big enough but I'd go at least 12' tall.

12 ft tall it will be. Thanks. Would it be big enough for two plants, or is that pushing it?

That would be pushing it.
