Simply pass a table with your arguments as 3rd argument:

  conn:call(object, function, { arg_1 = foo, arg_2 = bar })

You cannot set timeouts per call but you can specify them globally by
passing the amount of milliseconds to the ubus.connect() call.

E.g. conn = ubus.connect(1000) to have an 1s timeout on all calls.
