Anybody can list a billion rivals/derbys. If we are talking biggest/most important I think if we came up with a top 5 it would include (to me), in no particular order:

Those are clearly the four biggest to me ...
Boca Juniors - River Plate
Roma - Lazio
Barcelona - Real Madrid
Celtic - Rangers

The fifth spot I keep waffling on, but I would choose it from among:
Liverpool - Man United
Dortmund - Schalke
Fenerbache - Galatassaray

You forgot the Cairo derby. Also Belgrade derby. And Liverpool v Man U is not in the same level as the other ones you mentioned. And I mean for bitterness no success.

It really cant be answered. It depends how you base it anyway. Success, violence, geography, history, religion etc....

Ferguson claims the Liverpool v Utd one is the biggest game in the world. Half a billion people watched it in 2011.

It all depends how you base it though.

Germany - Netherlands is up there in top 5 national rivalries as well. The English might try to say England - Germany, but it's really only the English who worry over that one, the Germans don't care near as much about it.
