"up to" means including 1.0.9-1 which is not in your changes file.

Yes, thats what meaned with the part of
Include all changelog entries since the last version on backports.org or
since stable if it’s the first version. You should to this by passing
“-v<version>” to dpkg-buildpackage. Eg: ‘debuild -sa -v0.7.5-2’, where
‘0.7.5-2’ is the version in stable.
Which is meaned like include the changes done in testing since the last
version in backports.
