Tox assumes that setup.py is in the same dir as the setup.py file. 
You can change this behaviour according to:


by setting the global variable:

    setupdir = ../
    toxworkdir = ../ # might make sense as well

This assumes that your setup.py containing directory is one
level up from your tox.ini config file.  Adapt as needed.
