Apparently this is indeed a tracking site, perhaps combined optical and radar:

"Launch vehicles in ascent will be observed by two tracking stations using radar and optical tracking. The first tracking station will be located at Tongguling, about 5km east of the launch site. The second tracking station will be located in the Paracel Islands (known as Xisha Islands in Chinese), about 380km southeast of the launch site."
