pg_xlog directory was renamed to
pg_wal in version 10 and several functions, tools and options as well, to reflect that change. See Postgres 10 release notes:
Rename write-ahead log directory
pg_wal, and rename transaction status directory
Users have occasionally thought that these directories contained only inessential log files, and proceeded to remove write-ahead log files or transaction status files manually, causing irrecoverable data loss. These name changes are intended to discourage such errors in future.
Rename SQL functions, tools, and options that reference
--waldir. This is for consistency with the change of the
pg_xlogdirectory name; in general, the
xlogterminology is no longer used in any user-facing places.
