I don't think that gdal_translate was designed to handle such large
numbers of control points.
You could import your data as a vector point map then use v.surf.rst.
You would probably need to match the coordinates with the cell values
manually (e.g. exporting the raster with r.out.ascii, importing the
coordinates along with the r.out.ascii output into a DBMS, then
joining the two tables).
Alternatively, you may be able to get adequate results by using a
small sample of the control points and gdalwarp's -tps switch.
