Ignoring the fact that there are ways to promote affiliate products without having a website (email signatures, posting on forums, newsletters, article submissions, etc) it certainly helps if you have a basic understanding of things, but it's by no means vital that you're a stunning html guru.
I know a lot of affiliates who can't do anything beyond a basic bit of old-skool html. They outsource all their site building. The hard part for someone who isn't much of a web designer is being able to judge whether your designers are producing good sites for you. But even then... if you know someone who knows some things, you can just ask them to take a look at it and give their opinion. That's what we're here for :)
Once you've got the initial design, it really helps if you know enough to be able to add new pages, link them all up, understand directory structure, add images and all that. But beyond that... if you've got the money and you want to get started fast... try outsourcing.
