The biggest impediment will likely be that certain KUnit features and
infrastructure may not support your target environment. For example, at this
time the KUnit Wrapper (``tools/testing/kunit/kunit.py``) does not work outside
-of UML. Unfortunately, there is no way around this. Using UML (or even just a
-particular architecture) allows us to make a lot of assumptions that make it
-possible to do things which might otherwise be impossible.

Nevertheless, all core KUnit framework features are fully supported on all
-architectures, and using them is straightforward: all you need to do is to take
-your kunitconfig, your Kconfig options for the tests you would like to run, and
-merge them into whatever config your are using for your platform. That's it!
+architectures, and using them is straightforward: Most popular architectures
+are supported directly in the KUnit Wrapper via QEMU. Currently, supported
+architectures on QEMU include:
+
+* i386
+* x86_64
+* arm
+* arm64
+* alpha
+* powerpc
+* riscv
+* s390
+* sparc
+
+In order to run KUnit tests on one of these architectures via QEMU with the
+KUnit wrapper, all you need to do is specify the flags ``--arch`` and
+``--cross_compile`` when invoking the KUnit Wrapper. For example, we could run
+the default KUnit tests on ARM in the following manner (assuming we have an ARM
+toolchain installed):
+
+.. code-block:: bash
+
+ tools/testing/kunit/kunit.py run --timeout=60 --jobs=12 --arch=arm --cross_compile=arm-linux-gnueabihf-
+
+Alternatively, if you want to run your tests on real hardware or in some other
+emulation environment, all you need to do is to take your kunitconfig, your
+Kconfig options for the tests you would like to run, and merge them into
+whatever config your are using for your platform. That's it!

For example, let's say you have the following kunitconfig:
