This is actually NOT related to U-Boot, so it's  off  topic  on  this

You don't supply any inforation to U-Boot, it's the LInux kernel  who
needs  to know where to find the root filesystem, Assuming your flash
partitioning in Linux  is  correct,  then  the  "root=/dev/mtdblock2"
should be all you need.
