The idea is that in Arabic the vowels e and o do not exist. In Arabic there are only three vowels: a, i, u (however, sometimes "a" is pronounced like "e"). So, words like Duo cannot be written in Arabic. That's why there is a double و: the first one is the u (dUo) and the second one is the closest vowel to the sound "o" (duO).
