I'd say the giant would probably take round 1. I'll be going off the book descriptions of them as I've been going through the books again recently, ever since the travesty that was season 8.
Giants are likely a good deal taller than cave trolls, given that they can be up to 14 feet tall, and not even gates of tough, thick iron can stop them. On top of that, though the show seldom displays this and has them more as big dumb brutes, giants are actually decently intelligent, to the point that in book 5 Wun Wun actually begins to learn to speak the Common Tongue. They have domesticated mammoths, have a religion and, at least in the stories of Old Nan who has actually been decently reliable in the past, once had their own massive castles and cities during the Dawn Age. In comparison, trolls are notoriously stupid.
Round 2 is much closer. Giants don't ever wear armour, and their weapons tend to be rather crude. A troll with similar strength but fully decked out in armour that covers most of their body and wielding a massive iron mace is going to be a huge problem. The troll would likely take this more times than not.
