If you look at the value of K in your screenshot you will notice that it is a struct and one of the fields would be the table you are looking for (the name would be the name that you used while creating the MAT file). Once you figure out the name you can use the dot syntax to pass that as input to another function.
>> K = load("data.mat")
K =
struct with fields:
myTable: [4×4 table]
>> SVdata(K.myTable)

Because you have written a script, not a function file.
As I already explained in this comment, you cannot write a script and also call the local function from the command line. That simply will not work. Just as I wrote before, you need to decide:
You have to decide what you want to do.
