The WebKit repository uses SVN, so I can argue it is somehow obvious that you will need the SVN tool to interact with the SVN repository.

But in case you think it is not, then I suggest to request some change on the documentation to make this clearer.

Or even better: the tool 'webkit-patch setup-git-clone' can be modified to fail early if it can't find the svn binary telling a meaningful error about the issue: that you need svn installed.
