I say don’t worry about it. Once you remove the old rust and wax the cast iron table real good, it will take some time for it to rust again even when covered with wood. I sold my last benchtop drill press with the wooden table and the buyer didn’t even consider to check the cast iron table that was underneath it. I don’t think you will get pitting with shop use and a dehumidifier. The most you should see is some light surface rust that is easy to remove whenever you get around to it, if ever.
