Don't these tunnels suffer the problem of flooding from rainwater?

Only if there isn't a proper drainage system in place.

Is it true that every km of a motorway in Belgium is lighted?

There are 2 motorways that aren't completely lit but they do have the extensive exit lighting other motorways have as well. The motorways that have lighting are lit all the way like in the picture.

Almost, only a couple haven't got the extensive median lighting like the ones that are light. They do have the same exit lighting as the lighted freeways.
So yes, I would say that 80% of the Belgian motorway network is fully lighted.

80% of the network might have lights installed. Actually lit is just a fraction of that.

In the night (between 1 and 5 am) the highways aren't lit... and I dare to say that 90% at least is lit...

Indeed, when there are lights installed, they are working.

Norway has 97 % of fully lit motorways, only small test-stretches has guide-lights instead. So we're "better" than Eu and Usa...

(And our lights stay on all night.)

However, Norwegian motorways make up only a fraction of the road network...
