Where do I assign a static IP address to my sole network interface?

That depends on whether or not you are using a network manager and if so which one.

You haven't told us much about your board and it's network interfaces and how you built your system.

I tried using the Linux boot parameters (in extlinux.conf):

    KERNEL ../zImage
    FDT ../socfpga_arria10_phead.dtb
    APPEND root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rw rootwait earlyprintk console=ttyS0,115200n8 ip=
Then I tried editing: /etc/network/interfaces
iface eth0 inet static
Both failed. Where do I go?

To start, do you have the driver required for your network interface? You can use ifconfig -a to see if your network interface is detected by the kernel. You should also look at the kernel log if the network interface is configured.
