karaf is supposed to be found inside the {your odl distribution folder}/bin/assembly folder. Which are you looking into?

After extracting the downloaded archive, you should change directory into distribution-karaf-0.6.1-Carbon/bin and run the ./karaf command there. Note that the -of13 option was used only in the Hydrogen (and possibly Helium) version, it is no longer needed, OpenFlow 1.3 is the default in the Carbon version.
