Is it possible to define structure types for udfs? (http://www.cloudera.com/documentation/archive/impala/1-x/1-2-4/Installing-and-Using-Impala/ciiu_udf....) Or what will be the best way to return several double numbers from udf?

I'm afraid complex types, e.g., structs are currently not supported as UDF return or argument types.
As a workaround you could try the following solutions:
- pack the two doubles into a DECIMAL(38,0) or STRING
- you'll need a second UDF to unpack the individual doubles
