Among other ways, you could map over the transpose of list of the two
lists, e.g.

In[1]:= targetX = 5; listX = {4, 9, 2, 11, 4};
targetY = 3; listY = {4, 0, 1, 8, 6};

targetX > #[[1]] && targetY > #[[2]] & /@ Transpose[{listX, listY}]

targetX > #[[1]] || targetY > #[[2]] & /@ Transpose[{listX, listY}]

Out[3]= {False, False, True, False, False}

Out[4]= {True, True, True, False, True}
