I use   

 /usr/lib64/cyrus-imapd/quota -f

to list all the users and their current quota and quota usage...

i think that is more or less what you are looking for 

note that this is a cyrus binary , not the usual linux quota...

also note that you must run it as the cyrus user   

so i su  cyrus  before  i run it.
