Are there any guidelines for the amount of packet loss and retransmissions that are considered "normal" or acceptable in wireless networks? I'm seeing as much as 10% packet loss at times and several retransmissions from my testing. I don't have a baseline and am not sure if I'm seeing anything out of the ordinary.

It depends on lots of factor including RF environment.
IMO, around 1 or 2% should be okay for wireless.
You may want to look into:
1. RF interference
2. Channel busy
3. Noise floor
4. NIC of the laptop - Make sure its running latest driver
5. Amoint of Broadcast multicast traffic
Most of this things you can check on the Aruba controller. User guide can help you in that.
