Building LFS 8.1 on my Samsung laptop, I was surprised to see a large number of

Do I need to rebuild and, if so, can anyone suggest what parameters I might need to use to avoid a repetition?

The proof of the pudding is in the eating!  Probably very few
people, if any, are using this CPU to build and test packages such
as glibc.  Usually, a test failure does not cause any noticeable
problems at runtime.

I would suggest you continue.

That's my preferred solution too, for obvious reasons! But your advice puzzles 
me all the same. If the test results really don't matter, even when you get a 
lot of errors, why does the book emphasise the need to carry out these tests 
for glibc, binutils, gcc and the three gcc libraries?

In this section, the test suite for Glibc is considered critical. Do not skip 
it under any circumstance.

Because the book targets x86_64 (and to a certain extent x86). On those systems the number of failures is very few. The tool chain (binutils, glibc, and gcc) is critical to the rest of the book and undocumented failures there would cascade throughout the rest of the book.
