I use a cloud email service like Google Workspace/MS365, which gives me 30/50GB of storage per user. Why do I still need to archive email when my cloud mailbox storage is sufficient?

Your end-users typically manage your cloud mailboxes and have full rights to delete and move emails. Hence you are never sure if the mailboxes have all the emails the users ever sent or received. Thus an inability to retrieve any data requested by the auditor or compliance officer can put your organization at a significant legal or compliance risk. Besides, you also run the risk of IP theft or data loss, which can financially cost your organization. As a data management best practice, having an independent, immutable archive of all your data will substantially de-risk your organization and improve your ability to respond to data access requests.
