[Koha] Import items (holdings)

I certainly would prefer to import into the sql table and run the sync
script, but I don't see how the matching is done between the items and the
bibs.  The exported items CSV have only one guaranteed field in common with
the MARC BIBs 910 field, so is there a command line option to instruct the
script to sync based on MARC 910 matching with field xyz in the items table?

Thank you!
