I installed Redhat Linux 7.0 and now I'm trying to install the SDK 1.3. I downloaded the Linux version RPM shell script, but it is a .bin file and fails with unrecognized package when I issue the Linux command rpm -ivh filename. So then I downloaded the GNUZIP Tar shell script, but that gave me the same file name.(but the file lengths are different). I'm new to Linux. How do I install either of these versions?

It's executable. This is a common trick in the Unix world - embed a binary program in a file that can be run as a shell script.
Try:
./filename
Be sure and include the leading dot. Unlike DOS, the current directory is not implicitly part of the execution path. you should see the script unpack itself into an RPM, though if I remember aright, it asks you to agree to the license first.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
