Is there any options to host free for development testing purposes on Azure.net ? And what about SQL ? Somewhere was written that up to 10 ASP.NET websites can be hosted for free, but not sure if this is still valid ..

Web App Service does have Free tier, with certain limitations,
But there might not be Free tier for database. All prices can be queries online,

you can make use of the Free tier in Azure Web Apps but there are limitations as mentioned already.
For a database: SQL Server needs to be paid separately. Since recently there's the possibility to have MySQL in app (currently in preview) for your web app (https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/appserviceteam/2016/08/18/announcing-mysql-in-app-preview-for-web-apps/).
If you want cheap database and you can live without the relational model then go for table storage on Azure.
