I think you will struggle for such a small switch for business use - netgear do cheap and cheerful desktop switches. I would go back to the dell web site and buy 2 from them - they will probably be 16/24 port switches but you will get the performance and features you are looking for.

I think the switch Dell PowerConnect 2808 is suitable for this

Can I enable JF and Flow Control at the same time on this switch?

Perhaps look at the HP line, for example the HP 2520-8G-PoE supports Jumbo Frames and Flow Control (and many other cool features like VLAN, port aggregation, 802.1p priority and more.)

You need at least two switches for a iSCSI configuration for storage HA.
