As documentation says:

You can import VMware ESX and VMware Workstation VMDK images, Citrix Xen VHD images and Microsoft Hyper-V VHD images for Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2.

What about virtual machine with Ubuntu on it?

Will it import it successfully?

Have anyone tried to do it? Is it possible to import VM directly from Windows Azure. Without need to download VM on my machine and then upload it to Amazon?

In case you have Windows 2008R2 the easiest way is to use this tool

In case of Linux, some non-free migration services like CohesiveFT could also be used.
