Also see http://www.scyld.com/network/3c509.html which tells us

Only the IRQ and transceiver setting may be overridden when using
the driver as a module. Setting two cards to 10base2/IRQ10 and
AUI/IRQ11 is done by using the xcvr and irq module options: 

  options 3c509 xcvr=3,3 irq=10,11

i.e. the option io *is not* available when the code is loaded as a
module - hence the error. You may have to play with the values for 
xcvr - I think I got by with xcvr=3 irq=10 (but try xcvr=0 if this
doesn't work).
