The problem is that I have to enter the IP on the site and I don't know how to implement this in a script.
I'm not sure if whatismyip.com has shortcut URL to determine the location of an IP. I also tried with -dump, -post_data, -cmd_log, -cmd_script (read from lynx's man page) but not success.
An alternative way, I suggest you use ip2location which has shortcut URL, therefore you can find out the location of an IP address from command line:
$ lynx -dump --accept_all_cookies http://ip2location.com/126.96.36.199 | grep -A9 "IP Address Country Region City Latitude"
