I've checked my hardware and did not find any problem.

The reason of low speed is that I set the bs = 4k, when I changed the
bs=1M, and the speed can go up to 251MiB/s.

./fio --filename=/dev/mmcblk0p30 --direct=1 --iodepth=20 --rw=read
--bs=1M --size=512M --group_reporting --numjobs=20 --name=test_read
READ: bw=251MiB/s (263MB/s), 251MiB/s-251MiB/s (263MB/s-263MB/s),
io=10.0GiB (10.7GB), run=40826-40826msec
