    Most people ask to use a single line which is this:

    DELETE FROM wp_posts WHERE post_type = 'revision';

    But the best way to get all the revisions out is also check the wp_term_relationships as well as the wp_postmeta like this:

    DELETE a,b,c
    FROM wp_posts a
    LEFT JOIN wp_term_relationships b
    ON (a.ID = b.object_id)
    LEFT JOIN wp_postmeta c
    ON (a.ID = c.post_id)
    WHERE a.post_type = 'revision';
