	    Process process=Runtime.getRuntime().exec(COMMAND);
	    BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(process.getInputStream()));  
	    String line = null;

You need to escape double quotes within the unix code:

 final String[] COMMAND = { "sh", "-c",  "df -k /tmp | tail -1 | nawk -F' ' '{print $NF,\" \", $4}' | sed 's/.$//' "};

Otherwise it understand double quotes within your unix command as end iof te argument in the COMMAND string but sees no comma before the next argument
so " inside you Unix command should be changed to \"
