This can only be done using the CLI, you have to access FortiGate through SSH, and search for existing Web filtering rule, take 1 website form the web filtering rule, paste it on notepad or any other program and create them all. Then copy them from notepad and paste them inFortigate CLI.
Once done on one device then in case you have forti Manager you can push the configuration on all the devices.

you can figure out the syntax easily if you run a backup. the backup is cli commands so if you create one url manually and look for it, you'll quite easily figure out how to import many of them.
