Rear Wheel Replacement Help (Sizing)

I just busted up my rear wheel on my 2015 Orbea Orca m20i2. I have Vision Trimax t30 clinchers on it. My local bike shop installed a cheap replacement rear wheel on it. They said the rear hub spec is 9mm QR and 135mm and is highly unusual. I suspect its 9mm QR with a 130mm rear hub size, but trying to make sure.

Im a relative novice on rear wheel sizing, trying to see if it is indeed a 135mm, since that seems very unusual. Surfed the internet for some answers, but challenged to find the right answer.

I also suspect that the new wheel's axle is a 10mm diameter, not 9mm. I hope the shop didn't install a 135 wide rear wheel in a 130 wide frame, although worse stuff can be done. Axle width (length actually) can be changed depending on the hub's construction. Andy
