You probably mean SharePoint 2010.
You need licence for every user accessing the SQL Server. Check more at: Client Access Licenses and Management Licenses

It really depends,
If your SharePoint site is web facing then I suggest you to purchase Per Processor other wise count number of user and devices accessing your cube using SharePoint and then purchase that many CALs. For example if you have 10 users then 10 CAL are required.

If the reports in excel are static reports, that is they are placed on SharePoint and are not automatically refreshed when they are accessed by users, then the user's won't need CALs, since delivery of SQL data to the user is not triggered when they open the spreadsheet. If, however, the Excel spreadsheets are linked to the cube, and opening or changing anything in excel results in a call back to SharePoint to refresh the data, every user who accesses the spreadsheet will need to have a SQL CAL. You could go with per proc licensing, but a) you may not be able to buy this product per proc anymore--it would be per core (although you're probably fine if it's on a virtual machine with 4 or fewer virtual procs) and b) Server CAL may be cheaper if you have fewer than 130 users accessing the SQL data. If they already have SQL CALs, to access other sql servers, they don't need any additional licenses.
Make sure that you get a commercial license for your SQL Server instance. You can develop the infrastructure on MSDN but you can't put that into production.
