You've got a small confusion here between "key sequence" and "command
name". Up at the top, you're typing in the key sequence "C-x RET r".
That key sequence calls the command `revert-buffer-with-coding-system'.
You can verify this by using "C-h c" (for describe-key-briefly) and then
typing "C-x RET r". Or, the other way around, by typing "C-h w" (for
where-is), then "revert-buffer-with-coding-system".

When you set your global keys, the key sequence needs to point at a
_command_, not at more keys. We already know what the command name is,
so it will look like:

(global-set-key (kbd "C-x zx") 'revert-buffer-with-coding-system)

But that doesn't include the utf-8 part: using this key sequence will
still prompt you for a coding system. You could do that in a lambda, but
it probably won't accept a non-interactive function, so you'll likely
want something a little more complicated:

(defun my-set-coding-system-to-utf8 ()
  (revert-buffer-with-coding-system 'utf-8))

(global-set-key (kbd "C-x zx") 'my-set-coding-system-to-utf8)

Give that a shot!

Note that the coding system specified is the symbol 'utf-8. It needs to
be quoted, and it needs to have the hyphen. I have more than once tried
to set my coding systems to 'utf8, to no avail.
