My thoughts:
By java development, I understand that it includes the web development as well.

I dont know if there is much different between the Java development and cloud development. Cloud is not something entirely new concept. And moreover I dont know if there are requirements which differentiate java developer skills with cloud development skills.

You would use different technologies for cloud development and not necessarily restricted to Java.

Also can you let us know how you see a java developer and cloud developer as different? or someone told you that they are different?

Or are you referring to areas of cloud computing- Saas, Paas?

What do you mean by "cloud developer" - someone who creates apps that are ready to run on GAE, Azure, AWS etc.? If so, the answer obviously depends on the cloud environment in question. IaaS (like AWS) can run just about anything you can install on Linux, including JVMs - so your Java knowledge would be applicable. PaaS (like GAE und Azure) offers a more restricted selection of languages; GAE supports a sort of restricted Java, whereas Azure -AFAIK- does not.
