Thanks for this bug report.
make_sandbox_from_installed lacks a proper help. You can see the options in the manual. I will add a help in the next release.
As for make_sandbox, The only option accepted by make_sandbox itself is --export_binaries. The help says that you can also use any option listed for low_level_make_sandbox. You can see the help for that utility for details, or read the manual.
FYI, make_sandbox_from_installed doesn't support replication. As yourself have note in another bug report, the script is quite fragile also for a single sandbox. I haven't planned further work on that script, but I will accept patches.
