The correct syntax is to insert a space between option and parameter instead of '=':

VBoxManage clonevm Machine2Clone \
  --mode all --name NewVMName --basefolder ~/VBox/NewVMName --register

If you use the syntax with '=' then the shell will not detect that this parameter has to be properly extracted. The '=' form is undocumented. It sometimes works in VBoxManage (but not always).
