The expected results files are simply text, but there are two basic types: 
render tree dumps and text dumps.  The render tree dumps will be different for
each platform, while the text dumps should be the same (or much closer).

Yes, but run-webkit-tests has a way to save results in a different directory
structure, which is what Qt is doing.

Because not all of the tests are working on Qt yet.

I don't know about Qt, but the dimensions are hard-coded in the
DumpRenderTree.m source file for the native Mac version (800x600).

The #webkit channel on irc.freenode.net?  http://webkit.org/contact.html
