On Debian (and other distros), putting them in /usr/share/fonts or a
subdirectory will get them picked up by fontconfig and thus most apps
on Debian (except software using server-side fonts, see #657565).
I would suggest this directory:

/usr/share/fonts/truetype/mathjax

The package should be named fonts-mathjax. More monts policy stuff here:
