The same site that you are viewing the results for? That is strange. Google rarely show search engines including google.com as referer, may be a bug or...? GA has been showing a number of errors of late, I get a lot of search queries with keywords (not provided)

that's normal. Referring sites are sites linking to your blog or website. These sites that have your link the traffic comes from there because people click the links and it generates referral traffic. Also google.com, it depends what country you are in. I live in canada so i would have search engine traffic as google.ca and a referral as google.com since i do not live in the united states. Could be the same for you if in another country, nothing to really worry about. I know i get most of my referral traffic from blog comments even if the links are nofollow.

Note that living in another country, you can still rank in another country more better then you would with your own country, it happens.

It's most likely you searching google for your keywords and clicking on the link.

Google.com do have static page such as Google group, if someone discuss a site there, it is possible to get referral traffic.

Own site become referral? I guess that is because of non centralize of NON WWW and WWW

Well said, this is what i am going to say.

And how come own website can be shown in the list of referral sites? May be this is because or the full domain name/naked domain name (with WWW or without WWW), am i right? or this is just a bug/error with GA?

Try ti Resubmit your website on Google Webmaster Tool, May be your website has some crawling issues with Google bot and Bots are not determining your website and also do resubmit your website on Google Analytic.
