From the apparent wear on the steering wheel around the cruise control buttons and the wear on the brake pedal I would say that the car pictured has considerably more than 30,000 miles.
The picture of the engine isn't what I would expect to see on a low mileage engine, either.
A odometer that has not 'turned over" will typically have most, if not all the numerals in a straight line. The numerals on an odometer that has turned over will usually not be lined up.

All this is subjective. Without proper documentation it is nearly impossible to be certain as to the actual mileage. Good luck.
