can I use LCD-Olinuxino-10 to display from ESP32 development kit?

I would not recommend it. The display is meant for chips that have hardware video decoding and ESP32 is not such a chip. Even if you manage to find enough pins for the hardware connections and even if you manage to get the software working, ESP32 would still lack processing power and RAM for displaying anything more complex.

More suitable displays for the ESP32 would be: MOD-LCD2-8RTP or MOD-OLED-128x64. Here:

Thank you, which board/chip do you suggest i use for my IoT project it must have wifi connectivity or something like that. i need a big like OLinuXino 10.

Some Linux-enabled board like A64-OLinuXino. It is a board capable of running Linux and the 10 inch display at the same time. It also has a WIFI module on-board. You can find the product page here:

You'd need to get a cable for the display here:
