The King's Chamber of the Great Pyramid measures 10,47 meters in length and 5,23 meters in width. These crooked numbers seem arbitrary when measuring the dimensions using the metric system, but shouldn't we assume that this is just as purposeful a design feature as many other aspects of the Great Pyramid? So why did the pyramid builders choose these specific dimensions and not others?

The width is half the length. To say anymore than that is bizarre, the Egyptians didn't use the metric system so your numbers are meaningless, so basing anything on them is doubly meaningless. The Egyptian measurements are 10 X 20 Royal cubits

Royal cubits, correct ... let's call them RC.
And isn't it way beyond coincidence then that:
5 x RC = Phi^2
6 x RC = Pi
A lot points to the RC having been derived from Pi, with an accuracy that is uncanny considering the alleged construction date of the GP.

To put this into perspective: such an accuracy for π has historically only been attributed to Archimedes and Ptolemy about 2300 years later.

thats 'assuming' it was the egyptians who built the pyramids ...
If it were to become apparent at some point, that they did not build them .. then the basing anything on the logic in your post becomes quadruply meaningless
The metric system is an internationally agreed decimal system of measurement. It was originally based on the mètre des Archives and the kilogramme des Archives introduced by the First French Republic in 1799

Yes, and I'll give you one guess where the ancient Greeks got their math from.
.
Since the rediscovery of the Babylonian civilization, it has become apparent that Greek and Hellenistic mathematicians and astronomers, and in particular Hipparchus, borrowed greatly from the Babylonians.
Hipparchus of Nicaea (c. 190 – c. 120 BC), was a Greek astronomer, geographer, and mathematician. He is considered the founder of trigonometry
Twenty-two years Pythagoras remained in Egypt, pursuing closely his investigations, visiting every place famous for its teachings, every person celebrated for wisdom. Astronomy and geometry he especially studied and he was thoroughly initiated in all the mysteries of the gods, till, having been taken captive by the soldiers of Cambyses, he was carried to Babylon. Here the Magi instructed him in their venerable knowledge and he arrived at the summit of arithmetic, music and other disciplines. After twelve years he returned to Samos, being then about fifty-six years of age.

I wonder if all these dimensions have anything to do with function of the GP. )

That's what the official story is, "by accident". Either way, a lot of knowledge was lost when it burned down, possibly even knowledge we have yet to rediscover.
The ancients were very smart, if not smarter than we are today.
