The docs you linked are a little confusing. If you were calling __init__ 
directly, you'd pass 'self'. But since you're calling the constructor 
instead, the 'self' argument isn't used.

Since KIntNumInput is ultimately a subclass of QWidget, sip appears to 
be choosing the single argument constructor - KIntNumInput (QWidget), 
where the QWidget is 'self', and for that constructor only a single 
argument is passed.

If you drop the 'self' argument, it should work.

Seems like the docs should show you how to put together a constructor
