That's not so easy to say because it depends on your configuration. In the
default config you should find the quota flat databases somewhere under
$CONFIGDIR/quota. While it's usually a bad idea to touch those files by
hand you should be able to

1) shutdown cyrus-imapd
2) remove the users quota file
3) startup cyrus-imapd

until you found out how to access quota the correct way to cyradm.
