What's the normal temperature of the module?
I'm just recieved it (with dock) and I feel that it is quite hot while it is idling.

That is normal, summer 31C, the surface of it is about 70+. That time, I keep it run for six days with full speed, it still works normal, no damage to the chip, but just careful to avoid be hurt..

Is there any command to check the core temperature?

I run mine all the time under high load and yes, it gets hot but it seems to be ok.

If you can find a small heat sink off an old piece of equipment and some thermal paste you can reduce the temp of the chip a LOT.
Look at the support chips on an old PC motherboard for small heatsinks but beware the chip antenna, make sure whatever you attach doesn't overhang or touch it.
