I have a CD/DVD ISO image on the RHEV controller domain. I uploaded the image into the RHEV ISO storage via rhevm-iso-uploader and able to boot guest OS from it (i.e. the image is available in the Boot Options of the Virtual Machine settings). How easily can I access this ISO image inside guest OS? Straightforward mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom doesn't work.

If the iso is attached to the VM (that should be visible in the UI) then the CD should be available inside the VM using mount. One thing that comes to mind - do you actualy have a directory called /mnt/cdrom/ under /mnt ?

Go to RHEVM, attach ISO to VM and then you'll be able to use mount to mount it on filesystem.
