You can't. To do what you seek, you really only need the contents of public_html where your website it located, and the associated database for the website if there is one. A full cPanel backup contains many system files your local server has no use for.

You'd unpack the public_html to your local public_html and import that database backup via phpMyAdmin for example, on your local server.
