You can find out your exact position by pressing P. The position will be displayed in following format in the chat panel: (xxx, xxx, xxx).
Basic movement is most intuitivly and easily controled with the mouse. Pressing and holding both the left and right mouse button lets the avatar run into the direction of the camera which is controled with left or right moves of the mouse.
