Glorious: "Acts 10:48 declares: And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.

What other scriptures suggest a conclusion that Cornelius was saved when he was baptised per Peter's command?

Just curious!

    44 While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word. 45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. 46 For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter, 47 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? 48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days. Acts 10:44-48 (KJV)

Notice in the wording there that the baptism in the name of the Lord is in water and where else did we see this same command?? Try looking at Acts 2:38 when the church began.

37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. 40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation. 41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.  Acts 2:37-41 (KJV)

Cornelius sent for Peter to be told what he must do to be saved and was told the same thing the 3,000 sould that were added on the beginning of the church were told. See the connection??

The two put together shows beyond doubt that the baptism in the name of Jesus Christ is indeed in water.

There is no doubt in any regular christian group that Chirstian baptism (Father Son Holy Spirit) is a water baptism.

Indeed, every use of the word unless SPECIFICALLY modified is in water.

All in all there are 6 baptisms that I have found:

John's baptism
Christian water baptism
Baptism in the Holy Spirit
Baptism in fire
Baptism of suffering
Baptism into the body
