If you switch from a question to a statement, the choice of subjective vs objective case may become clear:

They are what. They are beautiful.

Them are what. Them are beautiful.

We wouldn't use "them" as the subject of a sentence.

I assume the context is something like you're in a shop pointing at something?

It should be "What are they?", or you could also ask "What are those?"

I'm assuming "how much?" is referring to the price. Your sentence seems abrupt and abbreviated. In full, you could say "What are they/those, and how much are they (please)?". However, it is arguably a bit unusual to ask the price of something before you know what it is or, presumably, whether you might want to buy it.

Thank you, Avangi, for your answer. I now understand.

I got confused because I compared it with 'It is I' and It is me', which I believe are both acceptable.
Anonymous'It is I' and It is me', which I believe are both acceptable.
