Tests made with mkstandalone.sh ignore the TIMEOUT variable ...

... and yes, I think that we could have a
- global timeout for all tests.  Something far longer than any tests
  should take (2 minutes?).  To automatically handle random hangs.

- per-test timeout in unittests.cfg.  When the test is known to timeout
  often and the usual time to fail is much shorter than the global
  default.  (Shouldn't be used much.)

- TIMEOUT variable.  It has to override the global timeout and I think
  that if we are ever going to use it, it's because we want something
  weird.  Like using `TIMEOUT=0 ./run_tests.sh` to disable all
  timeouts, prolonging/shortening timeouts because of a special
  configuration, ...
  Because we should improve our defaults otherwise.

  (I'd probably allow something as evil as `eval`ing the TIMEOUT, for
   unlikely stuff like TIMEOUT='$(( ${timeout:-10} / 2 ))')

Ok, the difference was negligible to begin with.

Btw. why do we have ACCEL when the project is *kvm*_unit_tests?

I'd also handle TIMEOUT/ACCEL in resulting standalone tests.
