The form object is passed to your makereport function from the woody2.js
this is due to the lines:

<map:call function="woody">
    <map:parameter name="function" value="makereport"/>
    <!--using the following element for its form definition-->
   <map:parameter name="form-definition" value="forms/form1.xml"/>
</map:call>

Therefore your function definition would look like this
function makereport(form) {
        print("before showform");
        form.showForm("form1-display-pipeline");
        ...
