as root
pkg -o ABI=FreeBSD:10:amd64 -o ALTABI=freebsd:10:x86:64 -o PKG_DBDIR=/tmp/tothrowaway fetch ...
or as a user
pkg -o ABI=FreeBSD:10:amd64 -o ALTABI=freebsd:10:x86:64 -o PKG_DBDIR=/tmp/tothrowaway -o INSTALL_AS_USER=yes fetch ...

The fact you have to specify both ABI and ALTABI is a bug I will fix.
