Satan claimed the dominion of this WORLD, aka the earth, or, more precisely, authority over the earth and all its inhabitants belonged to him.
It's is a contraction of it is. Its is the possessive third person singular. Your sentence has the correct word, but I would simplify it. You don't really need to explain that the world is the earth, nor say everything twice.
Satan claimed authority over the earth and all its inhabitants.
