When AoE attack like black oil missed your target, then it deviates, but still hit some important target of opponent, can his shield guard/sac pawn take the hit instead?

No. Shield Guard states that the model with Shield Guard may take the hit when a model within 2'' is Directly Hit by a ranged attack. Blast damage is not a direct hit.

Everyone other than direct hit by an area of effect attack are just hits, but not direct hits.

Sacrificial Pawn for search.
