That link already mentions this information in the top "Quick Start" section:

"3. Run the tests with ./python -m test -j3 (use ./python.exe on most
Mac OS X systems and PCbuild\python_d.exe on Windows; replace test
with test.regrtest for 2.7)."

But it would probably be good to repeat this information in certain
locations, for example in the more detailed sections on building and
running tests.
