Today I found an image show up beside AdWords ads on regular SERP.
It was not a favicon but a 70px-70px rectangle image, so standout.
It seems to be a test since I can see it on a browser but cannot on another browser and can see on google.co.jp but cannot on google.com.

That certainly does sound like a test. I haven't seen any other information about it so far, but will keep looking for some.

Is this for English language searches, or also for searches in Japanese?

For Japanese.

I found an English keyword showing an ad with an image but it should be because the advertiser, which is a branch in Japan, have bought the keyword.

P.S.
"70px-70px" is not a rectangle but a square.

I've read it comes from your favicon.ico.

i've been seeing it appear on mine for abut two weeks now on and off.

Side note - a square is a kind of a rectangle, just as they are both a kind of parallelogram. So not to worry on that account.

What I've seen of the favicon test was at a small size - more like the 16x16 you see in a standard browser. Favicon files that offer multiple resolutions usually offer 16x16, 32x32 and 64x64 - so the use of 70x70 seems odd to me if it is the favicon image.

It is indeed a 16x16 favicon that I am seeing now as well on almost all of the adwords advertisers (that have favicons) and they are presenting them as .png filetype.

US search btw.
