after reading JAZZ articals, I still have some gaps: 
what are the different between 'Timeline' and 'Iteration' in terms of Plans? 
and what is the relationship between 'Release'?

 Timelines is higher level than iterations. 

A plan shows workitems planned for an iteration.
You can only set Planned For in a workitem to an iteration for which a release is scheduled. Other iterations are only for organising the iteration hierarchy - essentially they serve as containers for iterations which do have a release. 
Note that there is no relationship between the releases defined in the project area and the "A release is planned for this iteration" checkbox. The latter is essentially an "allow to plan work items for this iteration" checkbox.
