As the name implies publish traversal is only done during publication.
That is something quite different than running a script from the command

Indeed. That is normal traversal, not publication traversal. Publication
traversal is done by the ZPublisher or zope.publisher, normally via a
BeforeTraverseEvent event.

You do not need to initiate publish traversal. What you need is to set
the correct local site manager. During publication that happens
automatically. In other cases you need to do that by hand.

It is quite simple:

    from zope.app.component.hooks import setSite
