That's probably a quoting problem (you are on Windoze, right?) The command line
on Windoze sucks raw eggs (well, not just the command line, but I'm biased :-).

On Linux, I used two kinds of quotes in order to protect the vulnerable 
inside each lisp sexp (you could also use backslashes strategically):

   emacs -batch --visit foo.org --eval '(setq org-confirm-babel-evaluate nil)'\
                                --eval "(require 'ob-ditaa)"\
                                --eval '(setq org-babel-temporary-directory 
                                --eval '(setq org-ditaa-jar-path 
                                --funcall org-export-as-html

Inconvenient, but it works.
