I know the iPad will have video-out, but will the composite/component video cables for the iPhone work on the iPad, or are we going to have to purchase another $50 cable to view through a TV/external device? My guess is another cable because the voltage on the iPad power plug is 10 volts (instead of 6, for the iPhone).

Does anyone know?

You have to buy the VGA adapter from Apple for $29.00 and then hook a VGA monitor cable to it. In Apple's defense the iPad isn't thick enough for a VGA cable to properly plug into it.
