SPOILER ALERT:

According to Mythbusters' experimental setup, Luke would have survived at least two hours within the Taun Taun belly , just long enough for Han to set up a shelter.

This article from 2012 claims otherwise based upon a physics model of how a body cools down.

Quote:
If Luke enters the tauntaun in a state of mild hypothermia, Han only has 17 minutes and 48 seconds to remove Luke, clean off the fluids from his face, and move him to warm shelter before moderate hypothermia sets in...


Two hours versus a quarter of a hour, assuming Luke's body temperasture is already lower than 37 °C (98.6 °F) upon the point Han moved him into the Taun Taun.    :scratch: 

Probably it all depends on the exact boundary conditions you set for your model: Body temperature of Luke and Taun Taun, outer Hoth temperature, temperature at which your body start to suffer from hypothermia, time needed for Han to build up a shelter,....

Based upon these settings, you can calculate/demonstrate that Luke will either survive that cold Hoth night or join Obi Wan's spirit in the Midiclorians Valhalla even before Yoda and Hayden Christensen do.  smoke

I watched it today. Was good. They really went to great lengths to make those tests with the log smash and the Taun-Taun.
