Both will work in this example.
The relative address "isolinux/isolinux.bin" will get prefixed
the current working directory in the ISO image. Default at
program start is "/". 

I recommend to use absolute addressing, because the working
directory in ISO could be changed by e.g.
  xorriso -cd /my/iso/prefix -as mkisofs ...
or by a -cd command in ~/.xorrisorc.
The same advise applies to -b (aka -eltorito-boot) and
-c (aka -eltorito-catalog).

Have a nice day :)
