I had started adding a series of flags to control the run-time
behaviour of the tests but it was pointed out env vars can already do
that. Mention them in the README so others can find out to.

This is a nice addition to the README, but please add more detail.

To force the use of TCG:
 ACCEL=tcg ./run_tests.sh

To force failure when KVM is not present:
 ACCEL=kvm ./run_tests.sh

To modify the timeout:
 TIMEOUT=$DURATION ./run_tests.sh # man timeout(1) for duration format
 TIMEOUT=0 ./run_tests.sh # disable the timeout

or something like that...

thanks,
drew
