Light is part of the electromagnetic spectrum. X-rays are light, just at a different wavelength. Radio waves, UV rays, Infrared rays, visible light, it is all electromagnetic radiation. They all travel at the speed of "light," which should be called the speed of electromagnetic radiation. The x-rays are created from the tidal forces of the matter falling into the black hole, they are created before the event horizon is crossed, which means that the x-rays created which are not moving towards the event horizon escape. I hope I helped a bit, if u havemore questions i will be gald to help
