boot.img as seen from a running ROM is one of the mtd blocks typically /dev/mtd/mtd2 . Search for if= and of=, for how to get it from the device.
Or (depending on if the binary is installed), run dump_image boot /sdcard/boot.img. Both of these should require root, without root = no boot.img.

And fyi not sure how you can go from boot.img to recovery.img... only reason I can see is that you want the kernel/zImage.

actually the reason i want boot.img file is that i want to create custom recovery for it (CWM) i have seen that CWM builder website it requires boot.img file to create custom recovery and i have rooted the tablet and installed Terminal Emulator .. Now ill try that command from terminal and tell you what happens and mtd blocks are not there in /dev ...

You can also manually place "dump_image" on your device via ADB. You will need to Google for a download tho.
