This article http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/innodb-default-se.html says that InnoDB is the default starting with MySQL 5.5.  The last paragraph shows how to check the status.

Note however that 'create database' and 'create table' statements can select the database engine that they want and ignore the default.

The .sql script creating the table should specify the engine=innodb  during the create database.
Within my.cnf you can set deafult engine as innodb.
