The actual IP address which corresponds to hit-nxdomain.opendns.com is 22.214.171.124, which nmap resolves to provide you the most information possible.
Change your nameservers to 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 and you'll get the correct results (you'll get a blackhole response, since 10.x.x.x is private network address and isn't WAN routeable).
Before you continue learning about nmap, I'd recommend learning about IP addressing and how DNS resolution works, since you seem to think you need to hide your 10.x.x.x address.
