is unit exam marks taken into consideration for cbse internal marks grade 10.
Your concern completely depends upon school. School management plans the division of marks. For few schools they must consider even class test on the other hand some just focus on mid and end . So the division of marks vary from school to school. What the school do is continuous access the student and then give marks accorrdingly. In my opinion focus on each and every test. Apart from internals it work for you in finals as well.

but I think I can rewrite the paper
If you are talking about the CBSE class 10th exams and you have already appeared for the exams and are willing to re-appear . The reason mentioned by you is not clear and so I am supposing that this is because , you have got less/unexpected marks in your exams. To be honest, it's really difficult for you to rewrite the paper in this pandemic situation where every school and college is closed yet.
I would ask you to check out once our country deals effectively with the virus and the vaccine is out, then only something can be said with surety, until then it's just the assumptions.
Hope that helps
All the best.
