    I know it is cold, don’t I? This is correct if you are looking for confirmation that you know it is cold.
    I know it is cold, isn’t it? This is correct if you are looking for confirmation that the weather is cold.

    So, either could be correct depending on what agreement you are seeling.

    Some sentences don't take tag questions. I'd say that this is one of them.
    I can't think of a context for the second. You're already agreeing that it's cold, so you wouldn't ask for further agreement in return.
