He probably meant to change to the program directory first (line 1),
then run the program from its "home" directory, like
cd /path/to/your/wineprefix/drive_c/Program\ Files\
\(X86\)/Google/Google\ Sketchup\ 8\
env WINEPREFIX="/path/to/your/wineprefix" wine sketchup.exe

As already mentioned, $HOME/.wine is the default wineprefix so doesn't
need to be specified every time.
If you specify a non-existing directory as WINEPREFIX, it will be
automatically created on first usage
