The same way as in the original game and most ports: add "-playdemo" to the command line followed by the name of the demo (with the original game you need to omit the ".lmp" extension though).
For instance, to watch a demo called clvoid52.lmp on a pwad called void.wad, you'd use:
zdoom -iwad doom2.wad -file void.wad -playdemo clvoid52
(You could omit the "-iwad doom2.wad")
IMPORTANT NOTE: Zdoom will only play demos recorded with Zdoom, and in most cases you will need to use the same version of the program that was used to record the demo.
