One of those oil filled heaters, yes that is not an issue. Heat rises and the heat given off can't even burn skin, so no way will it burn the table.

Heat goes up. The stub legs keep the heater as far off the wooden table as it needs to be.

It's silly. The heater should be on the floor, hot air rises.

I would be worried about it getting knocked off, then it being hot maybe catching fire.

If your desk is solid wood there is no more risk of damage to the table top than sitting on a wood floor. If it actually is a laminate veneer then it's anybodies guess about the glue used and it's sensitivity to heat. Risk of falling off the table is also a consideration.
