Many of the tests are designed to run on sandbox, since they use
peripheral emulators. There is one board (snow) that is set up to run
quite a few tests, but not those that need particular peripherals, of

Many boards run tests in CI using QEMU and it is possible to run those
tests on a real board using the test harness.

If your board has reliable drivers and they have been tested, then
there is not much point in running the unit tests. If they pass on
sandbox then the logic is sound and you are really just checking for
compiler bugs, which is probably not a good use of time.

I suppose you have seen the documentation [1]

Which board are you using?
