The correct usage is

	from MMTK.MolecularSurface import surfaceAndVolume

The error message you get is a bit misleading, it is a consequence of 
the attribute lookup rules in MMTK objects. If the attribute is not 
found in the object itself, it is searched in its type object. However, 
only objects with a database template have a non-None type object. For 
proteins, the type object is None, which is why you get that particular 
error message.
