"direct translation -->Knock his/her door
Toque from tocar: to touch, to rang, to knock
su: his/her
puerta:door
so, more or less "call to her door", "knock to his door"

Toque is the usted (formal) command for touch, which in this case it means knock (on the door).

Su can refer to the person who you're talking with (usted) or it can mean his or hers.

So...

Knock on your/his/her door.
