If your configure line is a copy and paste of what you're actually using then most likely you need to add some spaces and change both 'l's to 'I's in the CPPFLAGS.

./configure CPPFLAGS='-I/home/maziar/Downloads/q/hdf5-1.8.9/include -I/home/maziar/Downloads/q/zlib-1.2.7/include' LDFLAGS='-L/home/maziar/Downloads/q/zlib-1.2.7/lib -L/home/maziar/Downloads/q/hdf5-1.8.9/lib' --prefix=/home/maziar/Downloads
