In geth I can unlock my account via:
personal.unlockAccount(address, password, seconds)
in the web3js v1.0 I cannot find a similar function in the documentation.
How can I unlock my account with webjs v1.0?

I believe it's just
web3.eth.personal.unlockAccount. If you search the page you linked to for
unlockAccount, you'll see it mentioned as a TODO. (Keep in mind that 1.0 is still in beta.)
Per comments below, the issue was that
--rpcapi personal was missing from the
geth's command line.
