They are both for dragging windows, yes, but one is for dragging to top, 
while the other is for dragging to side, and while a window can't be both 
maximized and tiled at the same time, you can't drag it to both the top 
and the side at the same time either (at least not without dragging to a 
corner, which would again be different than dragging to top or side), so 
it makes sense because both the triggers and the triggered actions are 

Further, some people might want to have the flexibility of having both 
actions available so they can choose which action they trigger by which 
edge they drag too, while others might only need one or the other and they 
can disable the one they won't use as unneeded, and still others might use 
neither and they can disable both, so it makes sense to have each as a 
separate checkbox so people can control them separately, which is exactly 
the situation we see and exactly how they are labeled.
