Well, that refers for the values in that specific table and entire
document (which I went through as well) does not specify TjMax :(
Similar document for N270 series does specify TjMax explicitly in Table 14:

Another document, "Thermal and Mechanical Design Guidelines" for Atom
300 series:
specifies Tcase-max = 85.2C
Thinking about this a bit, I think Tcase-max should be lower than
TjMax, which probably is still 90C.
The document itself is a good reading too.

Anyway, thank you very much for your help, Huaxu!
