I guess you mean mySQL tables because php has no tables
Well if you have your dumpfile just run mysql.
e.g. mysql -u youruser -p < yourdumpfile.sql
This will connect to mysql with the user "youruser" and prompt for your password and afterwards paste the stuff from yourdumpfile... Even here you have no real zipsupport. Either you unzup your file first or you "pipe a bit around and try concatenating all commands in one line".
Maybe you have to define the database name (i think) with -D database if the database select statement is not included in your dumpfile
