In 2011 two-way trade turnover between the two countries reached $167 million, up 9.8 percent over 2010.
I think the phrase "up 9.8 percent over 2010" means "which (turnover) was up 9.8 percent over 2010".
However, I am a bit confused about the word "up". Is it an adjective or preposition here?

I think it is a preposition but adjective seems appropriate to me.
