IANAL, but it seems "most models" are under the Creative Commons license, in which case it may or may not be acceptable depending on the actual license type, and as a result the license of your own game may be constrained by those terms. Basically Google Warehouse doesn't "own" the models that are on there, the copyright holder is still whoever designed the model. It just has limited rights to display and publish these models overriding the license selected by the copyright holder (since it's.. well.. a warehouse).

I would personally consult a lawyer or at the very least send an email to the relevant copyright holder to ask if it's OK to do so.
