Where are your doubts?
There's a script in maintenance/sql.php. You run it using php with the
command line, thus  php maintenance/sql.php
It gets the file with sql statements as a parameter. If you're at the
wiki root, the script is at maintenance subfolder and the extension at
extensions/GlobalUsage. Thus you run:

> php maintenance/sql.php extensions/GlobalUsage/GlobalUsage.sql
