Can I use 1 pair of 4 Ohm speaker (parallel) with Sonos connect AMP?

I'm not sure I understand the question. A single pair of speakers can't be in parallel. You'd have just the one per channel. In that case 4 ohms would be permissible.
A possible issue with 4 ohm rated speakers is that they may drop down to 2 ohms or less at times and a loud playing pair may lead the amp protection circuitry to kick in and music to stop. If you haven't bought them already, 8 ohms rated speakers would be better, they usually don't drop down to much below 4. Connect Amp isn't very comfortable when the speakers drop to much below 4 for long times.
The above may not be relevant if you play at moderate volumes.
