beacon_int is available as a module parameter in current version, but the others you mention are not. You can list the supported module parameters with 'modinfo hostap_cs'.

There have been some requests on adding more module parameters and I'm working on this. My current plan is to add support for configuring more than one card (e.g., with channel=3,10) and to add more options. In addition, the driver will probably delay enabling the card so that it can first be configured with iwconfig and iwpriv and only after everything is set properly, will the card be enabled.
