Yes, it's because there are many tests in Boost.Geometry. You can find
the tests you've run in the libs/geometry/test directory. And it's only
a part of all of the tests since the tests for the rtree are located in
libs/geometry/index/test. This step in the tutorial is there only to
verify if your cloned repository of Boost.Geometry works correctly.

For the competency test or writing of the proposal you don't have to run
the tests of the library.

Btw, it's possible to run only a fraction of tests, e.g.:

b2 test/algorithms/area
b2 index/test/rtree/exceptions
