Hallo Katrin,

Unfamiliar with the 'Maya standalone mode' I'd try this approach:

create a test scene.
create python script that imports hou and loads the scene.
Do the tests by altering the parameters and what ever the the unit test 

Once you import hou into a python session you basically have a Houdini 
without UI. You can pass in command line parameters using your favourite 
argument handler.
