I need to upgrade my server for sql which has 70 concurrent users and 30GB db.
I read in internet, still can't decide which one is better. What I was thinking is, two sets of RAID1 as below.  

2 x RAID 1
RAID1 A hosts OS and log
RAID1 B hosts db

Or
2 x RAID 1
RAID1 A hosts OS and db
RAID1 B hosts log
?


How about RAID 10 and putting everything on the volume?

I recomment to use 120 GB SSD drive - it is faster than any Raid configuration
The optimal choice can be  OCZ Vertex 2 120GB

Given the 4 disks you have I'd go for your first option, hoping the DB isn't too write intensive so the log file won't be very busy.
