Je l'appelle.

Hi, how do we usually know what is the L' referring here normally?

Only context would tell. No way to tell from this sentence alone.

Hi I refer to the sentence showed as example in the above video.

Then you would need to have seen the video to be able to infer whether it refers to a man or a woman. To know the difference is purely contextual and nothing to do with French grammar. -- Chris.
