10.04 is the "long term support" version which they support for 3 years.
Currently we are testing 10.04 and 11.10 in the CI system.
It would be reasonable to replace 11.10 with 12.04 (and replace 10.04 with the next LTS version when it is released)

IIRC gcc 4.4 can't compile Qt5, gcc 4.6 is required at a minimum (but that may have been fixed)

Would the following set of platform and compiler configurations
be suitable for making the binary installers for Qt 5.0 beta release:

linux-g++-32 Ubuntu 12.04 x86 32-bit Gcc 4.4
linux-g++-64 Ubuntu 12.04 x86 64-bit Gcc 4.4
win32-msvc2010 Windows 7 x86 32-bit
win64-msvc2010 Windows 7 x86 64-bit
win32-MinGW Windows 7 x86 32-bit MinGW 4.4
macx-g++ OSX 10.7 Cocoa x86 64-bit

These would be the packages available through the 'Qt Project SDK'.

Since Ubuntu 10.04 is rather old, use of 12.04 is preferred.
Similarly it might be good to use newer Gcc version.
Any insight what is the best fit?

Are all these already running in the CI system?
It is important to be aligned between the CI system and release.
