    Both are correct, but the situation in which B would be used is much more common.

    2 Tim, someone phoned you just now. This suggests that the caller is no longer on the line.
    Who's_______
    A it B that
    I don't like either one.
    Who was it?"

    If the caller is still on the line, 'Who is it?' is best.
    Than you!

    The answer has to be "Who's that?" We don't say "Who's it?" as a full sentence.
    "Who is it?", Fine. "Who's it?", No.

    The only circumstance I can think of right now in which one would say ''Who's it?'' is in the children's game of Tag.
    And I agree that in question 2, if one is forced to choose between the two offered choices, the choice would be "Who's that?" (= 'Who's that person?')
