a == [1,0]  does elementwise comparison, you need to aggregate
condition for all elements of row

>>> a = np.array([[1, 0],
      [1, 1],
      [1, 1],
      [0, 1]])
>>> np.nonzero((a==[1,0]).all(1))
(array([0]),)
>>> np.where((a==[1,0]).all(1))
(array([0]),)
>>> np.nonzero((a==[1,1]).all(1))
(array([1, 2]),)
