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:

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.
