I'm not sure if you're asking "Why should I set a quota for my user id?" or "How do I set a quota for my user id?"

If you're asking the first question, you should set a quota if:
  • Your disk space is small
  • Many people are using your system
  • You are charged for the storage you use
  • You might use too much space whilst playing with your system
If you're asking the second question, have you looked at the man setquota command description?
