Or chiken egg situation. I mean, I need to test my unit test framework
using : another framework?

Well, continuing this way, a-priori it seems that the only solution is
to have faith and trust that one (or a minimal group of) framework(s)
just work fine without too much discussion. This group IMHO *should*
be simple enough so as to allow «proving» (formally or not ;) that the
previous statement is true without needing too much testing, or
something similar, like the proof of being working for many years
«without» failures.

PS: How many testing frameworks out there have unit tests ? I mean

... and maybe IYO ;o)
