With cellular you can safely access sensitive sites securely, rather than using public wifi. When I travel, I switch to cellular even in my hotel room to check my credit cards daily, check bank balances or pay bills. When done, I clear history and cache before switching back to wifi.

The cellular pads also have actual GPS chips so you can use them for navigation and gps based apps, the wifi don't have GPS, also as others have mentioned, you don't need to connect to insecure public wifi networks (which are generally hopeless anyway).

The cellular version lets you connect to cellular data networks for 3G and LTE connectivity. A lot of people choose to tether to their phone and use their phone data, but this results in a large spike in power consumption.
The cellular version also has a GPS/GLONASS chip for accurate location calculations; the wifi version will approximate it based on nearby iOS devices using iBeacon
