Restore it to a Linode and then download it through SFTP.

While there's no direct way to download a copy of your backups, you can restore that backup to a new Linode and follow the instructions on Copying a Disk Image over SSH. This guide will walk you through booting into Rescue Mode, connecting over ssh, and using the dd tool. At the end, you'll have a locally stored image file that is an exact copy of your disk.
