Automatically wrap long table
According to: http://foswiki.org/System/EditingShorthand
Contents of table cells wrap automatically as determined by the browser
So why long table are not wrapped on my system?
How can I force table wrapping (should I use div?)
I would expect that some column will be displayed in next row. In such way it will be easier for reader to check whole content of the table.

Solution for HTML tables seems to be mentioned here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/11250501/wrap-long-html-tables-to-next-line
However - if possible - I would like to use only TML/Foswiki syntax.

The documentation you refer to at the top refers to the content within a table cell

do not wrap automatically. That is inherent in HTML, not just Foswiki. The link you provided to possible solution suggest substituting table tags with floated divs which is very different. Foswiki table syntax renders as html table so there is no possible connection to that particular solution.
One partial solution is to wrap your table inside a div and set style as
. This is will provide a scroll bar for your long table rather than having it run outside the topic body. Here's what that would look like:
