Firstly, you're missing # # in your cfloop, should be:
<cfloop list="#form.selectusers#" index="k">


But, if form.selectusers is a list of multiple items, you don't even need that loop.  Just try:
  <cfhttp url="http://smslane.com/vendorsms/pushsms.aspx?user=abc&password=xyz&msisdn=#form.selectusers#&sid=WebSMS&msg=#form.message#&fl=0"></cfhttp>
