SOURCE: mazda cx7 engine noise
Does the engine have hydraulic lifters? If so air can get into the chamber under the lifter and cause lifter noise.
Diagnosis and repair requires removing the Valve Cover. A fairly easy job for your local shop.

SOURCE: noise when start engine
I have the same problem with my CX-7, but I haven't find solution yet :( :( :(
They open the engine and replace the timing belt tensioner, but that was not the problem

No way I can guide you through a belt replacement without re-writing a manual. If you've ever done a chain before, its the same stuff, just a belt instead of chain. Make sure tension is correct and that timing (index) marks on cam & crank pulleys are aligned properly. If you find any oil leaks in there, fix them before replacing belt. Get a manual... The job itself isn't that difficult, but is time consuming.

It is very common for the harmonic balancer on these to fail and it sounds like an engine knock. It almost stops when you remove the belt. With belt removed, try to turn harmonic balancer, if it turn back and forth, it is bad. You need to replace it.

SOURCE: A loud noise around the
As you saying noise wont come in driving and only comes in idle , it means noise will not come if RPM is high by norma in idle l, try this one start the car don't drive it just raise RPM(rotation per minute of only engine not vehicle speed) in neutral gear , if noise disappear that mean it a problem of drive belt . If drive belt is got less tension then also it can occur or belt is damage, replace belt problem will solve, (for reference drive belt it drive alternator,powersteering pump,A/C compressor that is made by rubber).Thanks if any problem ask me.
