On qgis 2.18 in Join attributes by location we can choice accuracy for spatial criteria, but since QGIS 3.0 I don't see this function.

This is a "won't fix". The setting in 2.x was extremely misleading in that it did not actually add an accuracy threshold distance, but instead was setting a "maximum distance in which results are totally random"! After group discussion the consensus was that the setting was misleading and very dangerous and accordingly has been dropped.
If you want a real tolerance behaviour the best approach is to buffer one of your input data sets by the tolerance before performing the analysis.
