In EOS contract library, it supports the now() and current_time()method to get the current time, but it only represent the block time and won't be changed during the execution.

But now I want to print the real time in the contract console, because my contract cost too much cpu, I want to figure it out which code takes so much time, is there any method?

Yes, because contracts need to be deterministic and output the same result for anyone who replays the blockchain at any point in the future. If it showed the current time, it would show different output for different BPs and full nodes, and consensus could not be reached. Therefore, I don't think you can print the real time in an EOSIO contract.
