日本はユーラシア大陸の東にある島国国の70%は山です。

The で is the continuative form of the copula だ. Your translation looks good to me. You can split the sentence into two, like this:

日本はユーラシア大陸の東にある島国 だ/です。(そして)国の70%は山です。

"Japan is an island country located to the east of the Eurasian Continent. (And) 70% of the land is mountains."
