Saudi Arabia and Yemen. The Bible mentions two Havilahs in the Table of Nations: Havilah the son of Cush (Gen. 10:7) and Havilah the son of Joktan (Gen. 10:29). The "land of Havilah" has been interpreted by many biblical scholars to be Arabia, and Joktan is considered to be the head of the tribes of Arabia, as most of his sons can be traced to places and districts within what is now Saudi Arabia and Yemen. Apparently the "land of Havilah" referred to a whole region rather than one particular place, since there appears to have been more than one tribe by that name. (from the American Scientific Affiliation web page)

Additional Comments:

The region in Genesis is usually associated with either the Arabian Peninsula or north-west Yemen, but in the work associated with the Garden of Eden by Juris Zarins, the Hijaz mountains appear to satisfactorily meet the description. The Hejaz includes both the Cradle of Gold at Mahd adh Dhahab and a possible source of the "Pishon River" - a biblical name that has been speculated to refer to a now dried-out river formerly flowing 600 miles (970 km) northeast to the Persian Gulf via the Wadi Al-Batin system. Archaeological research led by Farouk El-Baz of Boston University indicates that the river system, now prospectively known as the Kuwait River, was active 2500-3000 BC. Bdellium plants are also abundant in the Hijaz.

They do not relate to Job at all. Ophir, Havilah, and Jobab are some of the several sons of Joktan who appears in Genesis. It is possible that one of them is the ancestor to Job, but there is nothing in the Bible that would seem to substantiate this.

How many kids did Samson in the Bible have?

none That is not true. One of the Midrashim - which is the Hebrew commentary on the Hebrew bible - says that Samson (and Delilah) did indeed have children and that they lived elsewhere in the land of Israel, in a place where gold was: Havilah. So, the Bible doesn't really mention children perhaps, but commentators to the Bible, who studied the Bible in the years after the second destruction of the Hebrew Temple, interpreted the story with children to Samson and Delilah. I guess those children were half Jewish (or Hebrew) and half non-Jewish(Philistines).
