Although in some contexts (such as the examples you gave) they can be used interchangeably, generally, walking is the continual process of taking one step after another. One would never go out for a step, but one would go out for a walk. But if it is a very short distance, you can say "walk over here," or "step over here."

I hope this helps.

So

step for short distance, and walk, long distance, but can one put the limit short and long ??
