This looks quite good already. The prompt is coming from the kindle. The SSH connection is up already. It's only the follow-up call that errors out.
You entered that call to kvncviewer.sh there manually? just drop "root@" there. And switch "192.168.15.201" to "localhost" (or 127.0.0.1) -- the VNC viewer connects to the tunnel end on the Kindle itself - that's why we use a SSH tunnel here.
