I think base url means where you have installed your drupal on your server, and try to execute your website.

It states in step 8 though that you should go to settings.php:
 /drupal/sites/default/settings.php'.

after executing the database command:
 mysql -u nobody -p drupal < database/database.mysql

is this the step which you are referring to?

database/ is the directory that the file is in, and database.mysql is a file (normally just .sql) which you should be able to locate in the directory.

why dont you just connect to your web server using http and do the setup the usual way...

extract files to the right folder...
visit that folder from a browser...
if its a webserver you can do it from another machine (just use the ip)...
then follow the simple steps for setup...
