Comparing them at the same TDP is disabling 2 cores on the 10900k, limiting PL1 to 95W and PL2 to 95*1.25 and then comparing that to a 9900k being run at the exact same settings and voltages.
Or if you want, removing all power limits on both, disabling 2 cores and then running the 10900k and 9900k at identical load voltages and loadline calibration/vdroop settings, at an easy to do overclock like 4.7 ghz @ 1.150v load vcore (or trying to get them as close as possible as the LLC levels are not identical)
