Thanks for pointing out the section. I didn't read it through before. :(

Well, "inside SDRAM" is what is commented on WALNUT.h. Now I
understand the value of CFG_INIT_RAM_ADDR is better not to interfere
with the system design.

I don't see any caches are in a system memory mapping. Then I thought
it could be only accessed by those cache specific instructions, like
dcread. That's my misunderstanding.
