Why did I choose the region for VPS in Amsterdam, but the IP address is in the USA?

Due to such a difference in the regions, I have a ping of 100+ and a speed of 5-10 Mbps. I am in Europe.

I just tried to replicate this but it seems to be working as expected.

Can you verify if you are not connected to a VPN or using a proxy to run the tests?

Also what tool/website are you using to do this test? Note that some free public geo-location checks might have outdated meta data for certain IP ranges.

What I would personally do is to run an MTR or a traceroute to see the actual trace from your location to the IP in question.
