Another reason for cellular versions is that the LTE versions have GPS built in if your using it for maps. That's useful even if you never pick a data plan.
If using your hotspot works stick with it. However, some may want to be on a different network for whatever reason. Also the antennae on the iPad is larger than any phone's, so reception especially for data use will be better. It's all about options.
Because using your phone as a hot spot uses a lot of power. A 12.9 iPad Pro has a much bigger battery.

Also depending on someone's data plan, if you only need a cellular once in a while, like on vacation, you may be better off having a cel phone plan with a lower data plan, then just get a temp data plan for the iPad when your on vacation.cancel it when your done. This allows you to have two different cellular providers.

Can you not just use your phone as a hot spot?

That's what I've always done. Some people don't have that capability for whatever reason.

I bought a 2nd-gen iPad Pro (12.9") with cellular and have not used the cellular a single time... I don't think I've ever had a need to use an iPad where I didn't have wifi. Worst case, I could use my phone as a hotspot.

Also want to say, for those that have never owned one of these, these things are amazing. While I do want to refresh to the latest, I just can't justify it because my iPad is still runs flawlessly with everything I throw at it, 6 years later...
