Thanks... i tried to execute the command: WebKitTools/Scripts/run-webkit-tests
but it gave an error "Unknown option: gtk" and than showed usage options of
any more clue on what needs to be done to execute webkit test suite on linux
(to be specific its Ubuntu 6.0.6).

PS:I don't find much info on runing webkit test suites on net for linux
(though its there for win and mac).
