that is not possible to give that argument for method in commandline
You can only run the main method from the command line.
Take the variables from the command line and pass these to the  method you want to test from the main method.

public class MainClass{
    public static void main(String args[]){
        MyClassToTest m = new MyClassToTest();

command line
java MainClass

you need to initialise the local variables via the constructor

MyClassToTest m = new MyClassToTest(args[0],args[1],.......,args[n]);

or you need to use Refection APIs to populate the local variables
If the scope of the variables is the method, it cannot be done.
