Have you installed the desktop environment?
If no, then install it.
If yes, then use the VNC.

Welcome to the CentOS fora. Please see the recommended reading for new users linked in my signature, and do not dual post. Your original post has been removed as this one already had an answer.

You have set the DISPLAY variable, but using a non-routing private IP address. Are you on the same subnet as the system on which you are trying to install Oracle? If so, there an X server running on your local (presumably Windows if PuTTY in in use) system?

If not on the same subnet and on a NAT network behind a router, then port forwarding or SSH X forwarding will likely be required. You could also use VNC as HenrykD suggested. Another alternative would be NX/FreeNX.

It would likely be easier if you had physical access to the server.

[oracle@localhost database]$ ./runInstaller

In any case, it appears Oracle wants you to have a GUI with X installed. Also note that neither CentOS-6 (or for that matter any CentOS) nor RHEL6 is listed on the Oracle® Database Quick Installation Guide 11g Release 2 (11.2) for Linux Operating System Requirements. Not even their own RHEL6 rebuild is listed.
