You are right.  It's [?\s-c].  But I want to re-map all right
control to right win key.  Because I used to pressing right
control whenever I want to press M-C-f, which I use my right hand
to press M-C and my left hand press f.

It seems that this
(define-key key-translation-map [?\s] [?\C])
is useless in such a case.  And I can't find anything better to
solve my problem.

Or should I used to using one caps lock key to do every job
including keybindings with control?



Simple is the best.  ;-)
