In the Asia Pacific region, Korea-Japan has the most passengers, roughly 11M in 2011. China-Korea ranks the second, about 10 M. I think US-UK would easily exceed 10 million. What's the number in EU, such as UK-Spain?

Quite conveniently, the EU has an entire department (Eurostat) computing statistics about anything and everything. It takes them a little while to process so much data though. And so, in 2010:
#1 Spain UK: 28.8 million passengers
#2 Germany Spain: 21.0 millions
#3 Germany UK: 11.1 millions

With that said, I am not sure such ranking is as significant in Europe. Air transport is by far the most common method to travel between Korea and Japan, but in Europe, in many cases, road or train travel is.

For example, by air, there were 10 million passengers between the UK and France in 2010. Just adding people who took Eurostar alone more than doubles that number. Throw in the ferries and Eurotunnel's car shuttle, and I am pretty sure that overall, there are more people traveling between France and the UK than any other two countries in Europe, just as I would think more people overall travel between the US and Mexico or Canada than between the UK and the US.

Not necessarily; a lot of the traffic between the US and Canada is via automobile (whether it's a car or bus). I don't have numbers to back it up, but I would imagine that air traffic between bordering countries would be a bit less than air traffic between countries separated by geography. Also, in the case of US and Canada, both countries have multiple points of entry. Are we to narrow it down country-to-country, or city-to-city?

In 2010 according to Canadian government statistics, roughly 20 million Canadians visited the U.S. and 12 million U.S. residents visited Canada.

Of the Canadian visitors to the U.S., means of travel were as follows. I would expect the breakdown is fairly similar for U.S. visitors to Canada.

Car - 60% (mostly same-day trips)
Air - 34% (but 70% when the purpose of travel was business)
Bus - 3%
Boat - 1%
Other - 2% (rail and on foot)
