it is easily ionized

It is a strong acid because it fully ionizes and dissociates in water. That means there are more hydronium ions in solution making it more acidic.

HCl is a strong acid as the most of the halogens in group 7 except flourine form strong acids due to the fact that they pull the electron density from hydrogen, and as it goes down the group the bond gets weaker and thus increases the strength of the acidity.

it fully ionizes/dissociates in a solution

It is a strong acid because it fully ionizes in water, it fully disassociates.

Strong acids almost completely ionize in solution. HCl, which dissociates completely, is a strong acid. Therefore, 0.1 M HCl(aq) implies 0.1 M H3O+(aq) and 0.1 M Cl-(aq).
