I have tried to locate it and then display help:

$ /usr/local/texlive/2010/tlpkg/installer/xz/xz.x86_64-linux --help
Usage: /usr/local/texlive/2010/tlpkg/installer/xz/xz.x86_64-linux
[OPTION]... [FILE]...
Compress or decompress FILEs in the .xz format.

Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.

  -z, --compress      force compression
  -d, --decompress    force decompression
  -t, --test          test compressed file integrity
  -l, --list          list information about files
  -k, --keep          keep (don't delete) input files
  -f, --force         force overwrite of output file and (de)compress links
  -c, --stdout        write to standard output and don't delete input files
  -0 .. -9            compression preset; 0-2 fast compression, 3-5 good
                      compression, 6-9 excellent compression; default is 6
  -e, --extreme       use more CPU time when encoding to increase compression
                      ratio without increasing memory usage of the decoder
  -q, --quiet         suppress warnings; specify twice to suppress errors too
  -v, --verbose       be verbose; specify twice for even more verbose
  -h, --help          display this short help and exit
  -H, --long-help     display the long help (lists also the advanced options)
  -V, --version       display the version number and exit

With no FILE, or when FILE is -, read standard input.
