You should have enough information here:

WebKit has so many files that it takes forever to do the initial
checkout. It is a lot easier to take the nightly tarball, and update it.

Basically you just need to:
1) Download the tarball.
2) Unzip it where you want the source.
3) Run the script ./Tools/Scripts/update-webkit
