How about unxz raw.xz?

.tar.xz means that file(s) are put into a tar archive first and compressed later.

.xz means that a single file (may or may not be a tar archive) is being compressed using xz.

"raw" does not mean anything useful. It is not standardized, so you may want to consult the source of this file for the filename meaning.
