Remove the database file if present before mdb_env_open(), and after
mdb_env_close() to clean up.  Enable environment option MDB_NOSYNC.
And maybe MDB_WRITEMAP, but note its documented disadvantages.

Is there any way to configure or modify LMDB code to work in main memory
instead memory mapped files?

No such option, and a tweaking the code would be cumbersome in places.
Use an in-memory filesystem, like tmpfs on Linux.  (Not the same as /tmp,
but sometimes /tmp uses tmpfs.)  tmpfs still swaps to disk, though.
