Can I use it as a diode of a boost converter? The maximum current will be about 4-8 mA

If you know that it's only a Schottky (i.e. any parasitics do not
dump current into the substrate), that it is suitably robust to
overstress and so on, go for it. Size it so that any guardring
will not be conducting or you may lose your zero-storage-time
advantage.

schottky diodes are generally used in output stage at low voltage switch mode power supplyes.

Yes. It is OK. Special process provides this kind of on-chip schottkey diode.
