Check out the topic "Google 3D Warehouse for commercial game?" -- particularly the response from monalaw (who is actually a lawyer) -- and the topic "Google 3D Warehouse and copyright".

The licence terms are here. Of particular note is section 11.1 c

By publicly posting or displaying the content you give other end users of the Services a perpetual, sublicensable, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, adapt, modify, translate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute (subject to the restrictions set forth in Sections 11.4 and 20.3 of these Terms) any Content or derivative works thereof which you publicly post or display on or through the Services.


It would appear that you are free to use the content commercially. It's probably a good idea to credit the original authors, but doing so may or may not actually be necessary.
