I checked this issue: for parsing the number that the user give us as a parameter for the memory type we are using strtoul.
if one give to strtoul a non numeric value (for example 'T') this function return the value 0 (which is a valid memory type).

because 0 is a valid value, we can't understand that the input string wasn't a number (but anyway, we are using a valid value: 0).

when the test starts you can look at the test parameters and see that the memroy type is 0 and not 'T'.

I think that this is good enough, and there isn't any point in trying to see that the input string is a valid string number.
