Have you checked this - https://eureka.ykyuen.info/2012/02/05/run-whatsapp-on-android-sdk-without-a-phone/ ?

WhatsApp requires a SIM-Card. I know from various xda-developers discussions, that it's easier to do a backup from whatsapp on your phone with titanium backup, and then restore it inside your VM. But, the message database is local and messages are not synced across identical accounts.

I think SDK's emulator is not solving your problem. you might want to take a look at Jar of Beans, which is an alternative emulator created by an XDA member. Written in Java, it is platform independent, and thus should run on Ubuntu as well.
