Is there any command line option using which we can set the tomcat server
port to run on some other port instead of 8080

This setting is configured in your {tomcat install}/conf/server.xml file.

The only way to change the default port 8080 is to modify the below code in {Tomcat root directry}/conf/server.xml.

Change the Connector port to "80" instead of "8080"

Open server.xml in %TOMCAT_HOME%\conf directory and edit the <Connector> element.
For SimpleTcpConnector, change the sub-element "port" value to 80. Yes, You got it!
